Friends of Assisi Food Pantry awarded $2,000 from JCSB Foundation

The Jewett City Savings Bank Foundation has awarded $2,000 to the Friends of Assisi Food Pantry in Danielson, which serves over 200 families in the greater Killingly area each month. The pantry has received $20,000 in support from the Foundation over the last six years.

The Foundation’s donation will help the Pantry continue to provide food, diapers and vouchers for produce at local farmers’ markets, according to Kevin C. Merchant, president of the Jewett City Savings Bank Foundation.

The Jewett City Savings Bank Foundation awarded nearly $50,000 to area non-profit organizations this year, according to Merchant. In the 10 years since it was established, the Foundation has provided almost $450,000 to support communities served by the Bank, with nearly $70,000 going to local food pantries.
