During the week of Sept. 10 – 14, Bangor Savings Bank will accept donations for the Good Shepherd Food-Bank at all 56 branch locations. Each $1 donation provides four meals for a Maine family facing hunger.
In Maine, nearly 200,000 people – or 15 percent of households – do not have access to enough food. One in four Maine children lack access to enough food to live a healthy life. Hunger affects every community in Maine – urban or rural, rich or poor, big or small.
Bangor Savings Bank is taking on this fundraising challenge with the Good Shepherd Food-Bank as part of Hunger Action Month, an effort organized by Feeding America. Hunger Action Month is a campaign to mobilize the public to raise awareness and take action in support of hunger relief.
In the Sebasticook Valley – Somerset County region, Bangor Savings Bank has branches in Dexter, Hartland, Madison, Pittsfield and Skowhegan.
