CANTON, Mass. (November 4, 2016) – Bank of Canton donated the annual proceeds of its Town Card credit card to the Canton Food Pantry today, in the amount of $10,000. The donation took place as part of the bank’s “Month of Thanks” campaign, whose purpose is to provide support for local food pantries and United States service members, and to express gratitude for the bank’s loyal customers.

“This donation is going to help a lot of families this Thanksgiving,” said Canton Food Pantry Co-Director Mary Buckley. “There’s a lot of need out there this time of year, when the weather turns cold and families have to budget more for heat, winter clothes and the holidays. We’re so grateful for the bank’s ongoing support, with their generous donation and their ‘Month of Thanks’ collection drive.”

Bank of Canton’s “Month of Thanks” campaign runs through November 25. The bank is encouraging customers and non-customers alike to bring non-perishable food items to any branch during business hours, which will be delivered to local food pantries. Branches are also collecting travel-size personal care items and personal letters to send to active duty military, new recruits, veterans and wounded heroes.

“This month, we want to express our gratitude for these honorable institutions and individuals,” said Stephen P. Costello, Bank of Canton’s president and CEO. “We’re extremely pleased at the generosity of our customers, residents and Town Card holders in their support of our food pantries, and we’re expanding that opportunity this month to include our nation’s troops as well. We’re encouraging everybody to say ‘thanks’ with a donation.”
