VALATIE — Community Bank will support local food pantries and food banks in honor of National Hunger Awareness month by collecting non-perishable food items and donations.

Community Bank holds food donations annually to support local food banks and food pantries in its four-state footprint which includes New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont and Massachusetts.

Locally, Capital region branches will be donating and contributing to local food pantries, food banks, and food shelves of their choice, including:

Delmar branch will be donating to Mt. Moriah Food Pantry, St. Thomas Food Pantry and Bethlehem Senior Service.

Valatie branch will be donating to the Valatie Food Pantry.

“We’re proud to help support the local food pantries and food banks that touch the communities we serve,” District Manager George Cooper said. “It’s an opportunity for our employee family to give back, be an active volunteer in our community, and help bring awareness to the important hunger issues that tens of millions of people in our country are faced with.”

Community Bank encourages members of the Capital region community to support their branch’s local drive now through June 30, 2022 by bringing in food items or monetary donations.
