Bank of Canton donates $10K to food pantry

By

Bank of Canton has generously donated $10,000 to the Canton Food Pantry as families in need approach this holiday season.

Through Bank of Canton’s Affinity Credit Card Program, a portion of net purchases and cash advances from the town of Canton credit card are donated to local causes and organizations. The Canton Food Pantry is a major recipient of these proceeds.

“Throughout the year, and especially as we approach the holiday season, Bank of Canton is committed to supporting the Canton Food Pantry, which helps those less fortunate in this difficult economic time,” said Bank of Canton President/CEO Stephen P. Costello. “This is part of our mission of supporting the communities we serve, and the Canton Food Pantry epitomizes the concept of giving back to our town. We are proud to partner with such a worthwhile organization.”

“Any customer who opens a Bank of Canton credit card with us is also supporting the community through our unique Affinity Card program,” Costello added.

In addition to the Affinity Card Program, Bank of Canton provides drop boxes for nonperishable food, personal care items, and household products at its Canton branches at 557 Washington Street and 259 Turnpike Street. Financial donations to the Canton Food Pantry may be mailed to P.O. Box 202, Canton, MA 02021.

Nonperishable items may also be left at the Canton Food Pantry, located at 960R Washington Street (in the back of the Marilyn G. Rodman Educational and Administrative Center) on Mondays from 7-9 a.m. It is open for recipients from 9:15 to 11:15 a.m. on Tuesdays (senior citizens) and Wednesdays (all others). The pantry is sponsored by the Canton Area Helpline and is staffed entirely by volunteers who wish to help their fellow townspeople by providing a basic human necessity.

Founded in 1835, Bank of Canton supports a wide range of nonprofit organizations throughout the Canton area with direct donations in addition to its Affinity Card program.
