The Shoreline Soup Kitchen & Pantries earned the most number of votes from Essex Savings Bank customers who voted to help direct the institution's contributions to nonprofits.

The bank said its Community Investment Program would contribute more than $250,000 to non-profits this year in the towns of Chester, Deep River, Essex, Lyme, Madison, Old Lyme, Old Saybrook and Westbrook. More than $75,000 was allocated based on balloting of customers at branches. Other top vote-getters were Valley Shore Animal Welfare League, Forgotten Felines, Old Saybrook Fire Co. No. 1 and Estuary Council of Seniors.
