Submitted to Easton Patch:
held its third annual drive to benefit the food pantries in Easton, Norton, Mansfield and North Attleboro.
Responding to reports that the number of families requiring assistance was increasing dramatically, employees, trustees and corporators were asked to bring donations to the North Easton Savings Bank office at 20 Eastman Street, South Easton.
The response was even greater than last year. In the spirit of giving, overflowing bags of non-perishable food items, paper goods and toiletries were collected. Even with this effort, the local pantries are still reporting that their shelves are far from full and even more families than last year are in desperate need of assistance. The entire North Easton Savings Bank family encourages your support of the local food pantry in your town.
