Bar Harbor Bank & Trust hosting 26th Annual Community Food Drive

October 27, 2014

Bar Harbor Bank & Trust is hosting its 26th Annual Community Food Drive from November 1 - November 21.  Everyone is invited to bring donations of non-perishable food, cash, and grocery store gift cards to any of Bar Harbor Bank & Trust’s 15 branches from Lubec to Topsham.  These gifts will be used to help stock the shelves of local food pantries.  A simple gift of food helps make our communities stronger.

In addition to accepting donations at its branches, Bar Harbor Bank & Trust is also hosting live radio broadcasts at five area grocery stores in partnership with I-95 (95.7 FM).  Employees of Bar Harbor Bank & Trust will be at these stores to receive your donations between 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on the following dates:


  • November 7 - Bar Harbor - Hannaford
  • November 13 – Blue Hill - Tradewinds Marketplace
  • November 14 - Ellsworth - Shaw’s 
  • November 20 – South China - Tobey’s Grocery
  • November 21 – Milbridge - Bayside Supermarket

In Rockland, Bar Harbor Bank & Trust is sponsoring the benefit performance of North of Nashville on November 8th at Trackside Station.  Proceeds from this event will benefit The Kids’ Table, providing specific, nutritional baby and toddler food to local food pantries.  Therefore our Rockland branch at 245 Camden Street is collecting nutritional baby and toddler food during the Bar Harbor Bank & Trust Community Food Drive.  To find more information about The Kids’ Table, the benefit concert, and the types of food needed, please go to www.thekidstablemaine.com.

With your help, for twenty-six years the Bar Harbor Bank & Trust Community Food Drive has been helping our neighbors, which enriches all of us.  Local food pantries that will receive 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 Pantry, AIO Food Pantry, Thomaston Interfaith Fellowship Food Pantry, Lifeline Food Pantry, Machias Food Pantry, China Community Food Pantry, Augusta Food Bank, Mid-Coast Hunger Prevention Program and Whiting Food Pantry.

Bar Harbor Bank & Trust customers, who have a checking account, a debit card and donate to the food drive, are eligible to receive 125 bonus Harbor Points.  To qualify, bring in your coupon when making your donation.  Coupons are available at BHBT.com and at the branch.  This is our way of saying, “Thank you for your generosity.”  Harbor Points is Bar Harbor Bank & Trust’s free rewards program that awards points for using a Bar Harbor Bank & Trust VISA® debit card for signature purchases.   Harbor Points can be redeemed for gas cards, gift cards, travel, charity, merchandise and more.

Please join the employees of Bar Harbor Bank & Trust in providing a simple gift of food to help make our communities stronger.  After all, helping a neighbor enriches all of us!
