    As summer comes to a close and the leaves start to turn, North Brookfield Savings Bank is gearing up for their Annual Fall Food Drive fundraiser, offering the perfect chance to share some kindness, support the community and help those in need during the season of giving.
     
    North Brookfield Savings Bank’s Fall Food Drive fundraiser, held during the entire month of October, helps provide much needed food items to local neighbors and families in need. The Bank’s goal is to collect at least 3,500 items total, but the Bank will be contributing monetarily and is issuing a challenge to the community. For every item collected through the community, North Brookfield Savings Bank will contribute $1, for a total of up to $3,000, to help fund the pantries’ operations.
     
    Community members are encouraged to drop off non-perishable food items, paper goods and toiletries, or any monetary donations at any of NBSB’s convenient branches anytime from October 1st through the 31st with the proceeds going directly to local food pantries.
     
    Drop off locations:
     
    • North Brookfield Branch: 9 Gilbert Street
    • East Brookfield: 100 West Main Street, Route 9
    • West Brookfield Branch: 128 West Main Street, Route 9
    • Ware Branch & Business Center: 40 Main Street, Route 9
    • Belchertown Branch: 4 Daniel Shays Highway, Routes 9 & 202
    • Palmer Branch: 1051 Thorndike Street
    • Three Rivers Branch: 2060 Main Street
     
    Examples of nonperishable and non-food items that pantries can use are: paper towels, toilet paper, tissues, diapers and baby wipes; deodorant, soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste; dry and canned pasta and soups, canned meats, tuna and salmon, peanut butter, jelly, tea bags and ground coffee; canned vegetables and fruits, hot and cold cereals, rice, cake mixes, pancake mix, syrup, powdered milk and granulated sugar; canned juices, baby food, baby formula, granola and cereal bars.
     
    “The unfortunate reality is that there are people who still struggle with hunger close to home in our local communities. The Food Drive is a great opportunity for local community members and North Brookfield Savings Bank to work together to make a real difference in our communities by helping our neighbors,” said North Brookfield Savings Bank President & CEO Donna Boulanger. “It is always heartwarming to see the kindness and generosity displayed through this drive by our communities and we are so grateful for the contributions they make each year.”
