Salisbury Bank Kicks Off it's Eighth Annual Fill-The-Basket Campaign, Collecting Food and Donations for Local Food Pantries

October 15, 2015

Rapidly rising demand coinciding with higher food prices and a decline in donations makes it more important than ever to get involved in helping to make a difference.                                                                 

As part of the Bank’s ongoing commitment to find ways to enrich the lives of our neighbors, Salisbury Bank has kicked off its eighth annual Fill-the-Basket food drive to help local food pantries feed those in need. Salisbury Bank’s thirteen branches, located in Berkshire, Litchfield, Columbia, Dutchess, and Orange counties will collect donations of non-perishable food items and household supplies. Cash donations will also be accepted. All donated items as well as the monetary contributions collected will be donated directly to local food pantries serving each area.

“Salisbury Bank proudly supports our local food pantries and we are grateful for all their hard work to improve food availability for those that are in need,” said Rick Cantele, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Local pantries are in need of a variety of donations including: canned goods, cereals, macaroni and cheese, cake mix, peanut butter, mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, and tomato sauce. Household necessities such as paper towels, diapers, shampoo and soap are also appreciated.

Please join Salisbury Bank’s effort to reach out to those in need and accept our sincere thanks for helping enrich the lives of others throughout our communities. Fill-the-Basket will run from October 21st through December 12th in all Salisbury Bank branches.
