REGION – Saint Anne’s Food Pantry and the Grafton Food Bank will continue to feed those in need this year. 

UniBank, the largest mutual community bank in Central Massachusetts, recently donated $2,000 to both Saint Anne’s and Grafton Food Bank.

This was part of the UniBank Day of Giving, which included $25,000 in donations to 12 local food pantries. 

“As it is the mission of the bank to serve the people within the communities that we have branches in, we were pleased to present numerous food pantries with monetary donations, as now more than ever, their guests’ food insecurities are at an all time high,” said CEO of UniBank Michael Welch. 

He explained that when UniBank was listening to the needs of each pantry, it became clear the donations were not only about stocking shelves. 

“These volunteers were offering life support, including emotional and mental well-being assistance, career placement assistance, and places to gather for camaraderie,” he said. 

Welch added, “UniBank was founded on supporting people on an individual basis as we all do better collectively when needs are met one-on-one. As we close out 2022 and our 150 + 2 year anniversary, we’re looking to continue our giving in 2023.” 

A full-service, mutually owned community bank, UniBank has branches in Central Massachusetts and the MetroWest region of the state.
