North Shore Bank announced a donation of a total of $7,500 to eight local food pantries across the state to help the food pantries handle a surge of community members in need due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Food pantries receiving a donation from the bank during the pandemic include: Milwaukee Christian Center; Milwaukee’s Hunger Task Force; Appleton’s St. Joseph’s Food Program; Love, Inc. in Burlington; Paul’s Pantry in Green Bay; Feed & Clothe My People in Sturgeon Bay; and Racine County Food Bank. These food pantries received their donation, as well as coffee and treats for their staff and volunteers as part of North Shore Bank’s Bank on Kindness initiative.
“As a community bank currently open to serving our customers during these uncertain times due to the conditions related to the coronavirus, we felt it was essential for us to do our part in serving our communities as well. We’ve worked with many of these organizations for years through our annual Race for the Hungry and other community giveback initiatives, and we are proud to expand our partnerships during this challenging time,” said Susan T. Doyle, senior vice president of retail banking at North Shore Bank.
