CANTON, Mass. (November 25, 2018) – Bank of Canton recently donated $10,000 to the Canton Food Pantry, to help provide Canton residents with basic necessities and healthy meals this winter.

“November and December are two of the toughest months for our clients,” said Canton Food Pantry Co-Director Mary Buckley. “Families struggle to afford all the expenses of the holidays while making ends meet everywhere else – higher heating bills, new winter clothes for growing kids, and basic food and personal care items. Bank of Canton’s gift will help a lot people in the community.”

The $10,000 donation includes the annual proceeds of the bank’s Town Card credit card program. For every purchase and cash advance made by Bank of Canton’s Town Card customers, the bank sets aside a percentage of the transaction amount into a fund dedicated to local charities and organizations serving the community.

“We have great customers who believe in supporting their community,” said Stephen P. Costello, president and CEO of Bank of Canton. “By choosing a credit card that reinvests in the community, our Town Card customers deserve the recognition for this donation. They are making a difference, and helping a lot of local families in need.”

Bank of Canton has given over $150,000 to the Canton Food Pantry since 2005, primarily through this program.

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. – 9:00 a.m. It is operated entirely by volunteers who wish to help their fellow townspeople.

Bank of Canton’s branches at 557 Washington Street and 259 Turnpike Street in Canton serve as drop-off locations for Food Pantry items. During business hours, the branches accept non-perishable food, personal care items, and household products.
