Westfield, MA— Westfield Bank is inviting its customers and community members across Western Massachusetts and Northern Connecticut to help fight hunger in local communities as part of the “Thanks for Giving” food drive.
From Thursday, November 4 through Friday, November 12, all Westfield Bank branches will be collecting non-perishable food items and monetary donations. Items for Thanksgiving meals are needed the most at this time, including canned fruit, boxed stuffing and potatoes, gravy, jelly, and cranberry sauce. Each branch will be donating to a food pantry or community kitchen local to their service area.
“Giving back to our local communities is a crucial part of our mission. That is why we are happy to partner with local food banks by running a food drive at our branches prior to the holiday season,” said James C. Hagan, President and CEO of Westfield Bank.
