As food prices continue to rise, it is more important than ever to get involved in helping to make a difference by supporting local food pantries.

As part of the ongoing commitment to enrich the lives of its neighbors, Salisbury Bank has announced its twelfth annual Fill-the-Basket food drive to help local food pantries feed those in need. Starting November 1st, 2019, the Bank’s Riverside Division branches located in Dutchess, Orange, and Ulster counties will be collecting 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 Riverside Division to support 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 20th.
