Bank kicks off February canned food drive for local pantries –

Community Bank N.A. branches across New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont have joined together to host a canned food drive throughout February. The more than 125 participating branches aim to collect 5,000 items for local food pantries and food banks.

This is the third consecutive year Community Bank N.A. has hosted a February food drive in honor of National Canned Food Month. In 2019, branches collected 4,127 nonperishable items for 30 local food pantries, shelves and banks.

“Our local food pantries need our support,” Community Bank N.A. Regional Retail Banking Manager Paul Lepore said. “We’re hopeful that the food collected from this drive will help keep their shelves stocked for weeks to come. We encourage all community members to scan your cupboards or grab an extra item from the store and give what you can at any participating Central New York branch.”

Participating local branches include Sidney, Johnson City, Delhi, Cooperstown Main Street, Hamilton, Oneida 182 Main Street, Boiceville, Canastota, Schenevus, Skaneateles, DeWitt, Moravia and Cicero.

To participate in the food drive, bring your nonperishable canned food items to your local Community Bank by Feb. 28. For more information on the bank, visit cbnanews.com.
