Jewett City Savings Bank Foundation Grants Over $22,000 to Local Food Pantries

The Jewett City Savings Bank Foundation has awarded grants totaling $22,373 to nine local food pantries. The funding seeks to help pantries supply food and resources needed to support the families and individuals living in communities in eastern Connecticut and southwestern Rhode Island.

Grants of $3,000 were awarded to Interfaith Human Services of Putnam to help support their Daily Bread Food Pantry and Diaper Bank of NECT and Saint Mary Food Pantry in Jewett City to purchase fresh food for their patrons.

The Thompson Ecumenical Empowerment Group, Inc. (TEEG) received $2,500 to support the stand-alone food markets in Thompson, Pomfret, and Woodstock, Connecticut. Also receiving a $2,500 grant was the Jonnycake Center of Westerly, which will be used to stock the shelves of the food pantry. The Friends of Assisi Food Pantry in Danielson and Project PIN Food Pantry in Moosup received grants of $2,500, as well as additional $1,000 grants, awarded in recognition of Jewett City Savings Bank’s former Director, Phillip Tetreault. 

The Foundation awarded Preston City Congregational Church $1,500, which will help purchase basic food items and provide items for the holiday season. The United Way of Southeastern Connecticut, Inc. received $1,000 to support the mobile food pantry distribution at Griswold High School. The Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center, Inc. was awarded a grant of $1,873 earlier in the year in recognition of the Bank’s 150th Anniversary.

“When it comes to making sure our neighbors are supported during times of food insecurity, it’s our local food pantries who are the first line of support for them. We hope the grants awarded from the Foundation will help ensure the pantry shelves are stocked for our community members in need,” said Michael Alberts, President of the Jewett City Savings Bank Foundation.

This year, the Foundation awarded 70 grants to a variety of organizations totaling $96,211.
