Salisbury Bank Kicks off it's Eleventh Annual Fill-the-Basket Campaign

November 1, 2018

A rapid rise in demand, along with increased food prices makes it more important than ever to get involved in helping to make a difference by supporting local food pantries.

As part of the Bank’s ongoing commitment to enrich the lives of our neighbors, Salisbury Bank has kicked off its eleventh annual Fill-the-Basket food drive to help local food pantries feed those in need. Salisbury Bank’s fourteen branches, located in Berkshire, Litchfield, 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 Salisbury Bank’s effort 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 22nd in all Salisbury Bank branches.
