Jewett City Savings donates to food pantries

Published November 29. 2012 4:00AM

Five local food pantries will share a $1,000 gift from Jewett City Savings Bank.

The donation was in response to a special "trade a token" campaign, with the bank committing to a $1 food pantry gift (up to $1,000 total) for each paper token returned. The free tokens were featured in special mailings, newspaper ads, and online. The Bank added an extra $1 for each new "Like" received on its Facebook page.

Sharing in the bank's $1,000 donation were the Friends of Assisi Food Pantry in Brooklyn; Project PIN in Moosup; Community Kitchens in Dayville; St. Mary Food Pantry in Jewett City; and Preston City Congregational Church Food Pantry in Preston.
