Sutton check donation

Oxford, Massachusetts – Robert J. Morton, president and CEO of bankHometown, announced that this year’s Neighbors Helping Neighbors fundraising drive raised $32,200 for local food pantries. This brings the total amount raised over the 17 years the program has been in place to $225,700.

Each year, the bank invites customers, employees, and members of the community to donate funds at bankHometown branches throughout the month of November. All the donations received are matched by bankHometown and the total divided among food pantries in Massachusetts and Connecticut communities the bank serves.

  • Athol Salvation Army Food Pantry
