As communities across Massachusetts struggle with COVID-19’s economic impact, our region is seeing unprecedented demand for food assistance. Athol Savings Bank has pledged to make $1,000 donations to Seven Local Food Organizations: Winchendon Community Action Council; Gardner Community Action Committee; Athol Salvation Army; Ashburnham Community Church; Barre Food Pantry; Templeton Food Pantry; and North Quabbin Food-a-Thon. “A crisis like this can be devastating for many people and families in our community,” said President and CEO Daniel Zona. “As a financial institution with a mission rooted in community service and a solid foundation for growth, we feel a duty to help keep food on every table during these turbulent times.”  Please join ASB by making a monetary or food donation to your local pantry.
