Press release submitted by Rollstone Bank & Trust
Rollstone Bank & Trust has made a $5,000 donation to Ginny's Helping Hand in Leominster, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of the less fortunate. Funds will be used for the purchase of a commercial refrigerator to support Ginny’s food bank and accommodate the increased food donation deliveries that help needy families throughout the region.
Since the beginning of 2021, the Worcester County Food Bank has added weekly deliveries to Ginny's, dropping off more than 1,000 pounds of perishable food each week, including fresh produce, milk, eggs and other pantry staples. The new refrigerator is needed to keep that food fresh long enough for it to be distributed.
“We’re proud to support Ginny’s and the wonderful work it does for our community,” said Melissa Maranda, Senior VP/Senior Trust Advisor for Rollstone Bank (Wealth Management Division), who helped to make the donation possible. “If the last year has taught us anything it’s that challenging times can affect us without any notice. The more we are able to prepare for those times, the better we can support each other and get through those times.”
In addition to its food pantry, Ginny’s Helping Hand also collects lightly used clothing and household goods.
