Riverside Bank, a Division of Salisbury Bank and Trust Company Kicks off it's Annual Fill-the-Basket Campaign

October 26, 2017

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, The Riverside Division of Salisbury Bank and Trust Company has kicked off its third annual Fill-the-Basket food drive to help local food pantries feed those in need. The Riverside Division’s five branches, located in Dutchess, Orange, and Ulster 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 the 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.
