CHARLES RIVER BANK COLLECTING FOR LOCAL FOOD PANTRIES
November 12, 2013, Medway, MA
The giving spirit is building as the holiday season approaches. This year, Charles River Bank (CRB) initiates its seasonal giving with a food drive to benefit the Medway Food Pantry, Mendon Food Pantry, and Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry at St. Blaise Parish in Bellingham just in time for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Each year, CRB lends a helping hand to friends and neighbors in need. This year, during the month of November, the Bank will be collecting non perishable food items and other supplies in all three of their branch lobbies.
CRB is now reaching out to their customers and community to ask for help. Collection tables have been set up in each of Charles River Bank's branches in Medway, Mendon and Bellingham for anyone to stop by and drop off items. Lobby hours are Monday through Wednesday 8:30 am - 4:00 pm, Thursday 8:30 am - 7:00 pm, Friday 8:30 am - 5:00pm, and Saturday 9:00 am -1:00 pm. Non-perishable food items may include canned goods, cereal, baby food, peanut butter, crackers, and pasta. Other items to consider are paper goods, toothbrushes, or even soap. The bank asks that all donations be dropped off at your local Charles River Bank branch by Saturday, December 14, 2013.
