AMBLER – April is Community Banking Month, and community banks across the nation are celebrating their customers and communities.
Ambler Savings Bank, with locations in Ambler, Fairview Village, Schwenksville, and Limerick, is celebrating Community Banking Month by giving back to our communities. We want to bring together our employees, customers, and communities to help those in need, and to do so, will be hosting a canned and non-perishable foods drive for Philabundance. The food collected during the drive will be sent to Philabundance and dispersed to their network of more than 400 agencies and direct service programs throughout the Delaware Valley, which includes Mattie N. Dixon Community Cupboard in Ambler, Manna on Main Street in Lansdale, Daily Bread Food Pantry in Schwenksville and Open Door Ministry in Royersford, among other Montgomery County based agencies.
During Ambler Savings Bank’s 2014 food drive, we raised 459 pounds of food for Philabundance. We have a goal of 650 pounds of food this year.
Collection boxes will be in the lobbies of all Ambler Savings Bank branches beginning April 1 and the food drive will run throughout the month of April. To find your nearest branch, visit our website, www.AmblerSavingsBank.com.
Philabundance’s “high priority” items include: macaroni and cheese, canned pasta, creamy peanut butter, jelly, canned green beans, canned corn, canned fruit, and hot and cold cereals. See a full list of high need items on the Philabundance website (www.Philabundance.org).
