CANTON, Mass. (November 25, 2022) – Bank of Canton recently donated $10,000 to the Canton Food Pantry, to help provide groceries and personal care items to those in need.
“Bank of Canton has been a longtime supporter of ours,” said Mary Buckley, director of the Canton Food Pantry, “and this generous gift is going to help many local residents who are struggling with higher grocery bills, gas bills and heating bills. Winter is always a challenging time of year, but this year in particular will be very will be difficult for clients on fixed or modest incomes.
“That’s why we’re so grateful for the financial support of our community partners like Bank of Canton and the donations we receive from Canton residents who want to help.”
The Canton Food Pantry, located at 960R Washington Street (in the back of the Marilyn G. Rodman Educational and Administrative Center), accepts non-perishable items on Mondays between 7:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m.
For those unable to donate during those hours, Bank of Canton’s branches at 557 Washington Street and 259 Turnpike Street in Canton also serve as drop-off locations for the pantry. During business hours, the branches accept non-perishable food, personal care items, and household products.
“Canton has a strong community, full of hard-working and resilient individuals and families,” said Stephen P. Costello, president and CEO of Bank of Canton. “We’re proud be a part of that community and provide a helping hand to those in need.”
Bank of Canton has donated more than $190,000 to the Canton Food Pantry since 2005. In August, the bank was recognized with a Corporate Citizenship Award from the Boston Business Journal for the fourth straight year.
