"Bank the Food" Drive to Benefit Local Food Pantries

Posted on: in [ General ]

The rush of the holiday season often only leaves us time to think about our needs and what we have to do. However, it is also an important time to remember that many people in our communities, people we see or talk to every day, don’t have it as good as we do.

 

At State Bank, we believe in helping all members of our communities in any way we can. That is why we are participating in the “Bank the Food” Drive. This campaign is aimed at benefitting local food pantries to help them during this busy time of year.

 

We are spreading the gift of giving...

The holiday season is one of the busiest times of year for local food pantries.  Every item of food or supplies displayed in our State Bank offices represents a gift that has been bought for someone in need. 

 

Want to help?
