Florence Bank Gives $7,500 to Easthampton Community Center
Funds to benefit the Community Center’s Food Pantry Program
We’re happy to share that we recently supported the Easthampton Community Center’s Food Pantry Program with a $7,500 donation. The Food Pantry makes an extraordinary impact in our communities by serving 22 towns throughout the Valley.
The Easthampton Community Center’s Food Pantry currently provides food each month to 6,000 food insecure individuals in need, including more than 600 children in the greater Easthampton area through their Kid’s Summer Pantry Program.
The Easthampton Community Center has been a dependable resource in the Easthampton community for 46 years. The core of the Community Center’s mission is to provide services and assistance to residents through their Food Pantry, Community Care Kitchen, and Clothing Closet programs. Additionally, the Community Center serves as a meeting space for community groups and celebratory gatherings.
Kevin Day, our President and CEO said, “We are pleased to be able to contribute to the Easthampton Community Center so they can continue to serve the people of the greater Easthampton area with the essential resources offered through their Food Pantry.”
Robin Bialecki, Easthampton Community Center’s executive director added, “Since the on-set of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Easthampton Community Center has seen a huge influx in the number of individuals in need. Donations like this from Florence Bank will help keep our mission sustainable and strong during this challenging time.”
Thank you, Easthampton Community Center, for providing essential programs and services to support our most vulnerable community members!
