Region – Commerce Bank has 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.
“The Worcester County Food Bank provides critical services to those in need in our community,” said Commerce Bank President and CEO Brian Thompson. “We encourage our customers and the public to help the Food Bank fulfill its important mission by dropping off non-perishable food items in our offices’ collection bins.”
“Neighbors in our very own communities struggle to make ends meet,” said Worcester County Food Bank Executive Director Jean McMurray. “Winter is an especially tough time of year, as some families are forced to make difficult choices like paying for food or paying for heat. Worcester County Food Bank and our network of Partner Agencies seek to ease that burden by providing food to people in need today, as well as resources for help for tomorrow. Friends like Commerce Bank and its customers make our work possible and the communities we support stronger, and we thank them for their continued support.”
