Salisbury Bank Kicks off it's Ninth Annual Fill-the-Basket Campaign, Collecting Food and Donations for Local Food Pantries
October 24, 2016
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 enrich the lives of our neighbors, Salisbury Bank has kicked off its ninth annual Fill-the-Basket food drive to help local food pantries feed those in need. Salisbury Bank’s thirteen branches, located in Berkshire, Litchfield, 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.
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 November 1st through December 22nd in all Salisbury Bank branches.
