Commerce Bank launches food drive


Region – Commerce Bank announced that its 13 offices throughout central Massachusetts are collecting donated food items for the Worcester County Food Bank, to help it feed hungry people living in 60 cities and towns in the region.

“Each year, more than 100,000 people in need in Worcester County receive assistance from the Worcester County Food Bank,” said Commerce Bank President and CEO Brian Thompson. “We encourage our customers and the public to join us in supporting the food bank and those it serves by dropping off non-perishable food items in our offices’ collection bins.”

Non-perishable food items can be dropped off through Friday, Nov. 21, at the following local Commerce Bank locations: 322 Maple St., Marlborough; 226 Boston Turnpike, Shrewsbury; and 5 W. Main St., Westborough.

“Worcester County Food Bank collaborates with a range of community partners every day to provide safe and nutritious food to children and families in need across the county, as well as to connect them to programs designed to end hunger,” said Jean McMurray, executive director of the Worcester County Food Bank. “We could not do it without the generous and loyal support of neighbors like Commerce Bank and their customers.”
