BAR HARBOR BANK & TRUST 27th ANNUAL COMMUNITY FOOD DRIVE - FINAL RESULTS!

 

Bar Harbor, Maine - Bar Harbor Bank & Trust concluded their 27th Annual Community Food Drive on November 20.  More than 2,525 food items and over $1,240 were collected for and delivered to local food pantries prior to the Thanksgiving holiday.  "On behalf of the Bank, I would like to thank everyone who offered a helping hand by donating to the food drive.  These simple gifts help make ends meet for so many individuals and families in Maine, in communities from Topsham to Lubec," said Margie Gray at Bar Harbor Bank & Trust. 

 

These gifts helped fill Thanksgiving food baskets and stock the shelves of local food pantries for the winter months ahead.  "I would also like to thank the five local grocery stores that participated in the live radio broadcasts with I-95 Radio: Hannaford in Bar Harbor, Shaw's in Ellsworth, Tradewinds Marketplace in Blue Hill, Bayside Supermarket in Milbridge, and Tobey's Grocery in South China," said Gray.  "Our employees enjoy interacting with the community during these events and collecting donations for our local food pantries."

 

Each of Bar Harbor Bank & Trust's 15 branches also collected donations for the Food Drive and delivered them to their local food pantry for distribution.  The food pantries that received these donations include:  Bar Harbor Food Pantry, Westside Food Pantry, Emmaus Center, Loaves and Fishes, Tree of Life, Maine Sea Coast Mission Food Pantry at Weald Bethel, Island Food Pantry, AIO Food Pantry, Lifeline Food Pantry, Machias Food Pantry, China Community Food Pantry, Augusta Food Bank, Mid-Coast Hunger Prevention Program and Whiting Food Pantry.

 

 "On behalf of all Bar Harbor Bank & Trust employees, our gratitude goes out to everyone who donated so generously to the Food Drive.  Thank you for sharing what you have to help meet the needs of our neighbors," said Gray.  "Every contribution counts."
