Rollstone Bank & Trust donated $ 5,000 to Ginny’s Helping Hand in Leominster, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of the less fortunate.
The funds will be used to purchase a commercial refrigerator to support Ginny’s food bank and accommodate increased deliveries of food donations that help families in need across the region.
Since early 2021, the Worcester County Food Bank has added weekly deliveries to Ginny’s, dropping off more than 1,000 pounds of perishables each week, including fresh produce, milk, eggs and other staples. . The new refrigerator is needed to keep these foods fresh long enough for them to be distributed.
âWe are proud to support Ginny’s and the tremendous work she does for our community,â said Melissa Maranda, Senior Vice President / Senior Trust Advisor for Rollstone Bank (Wealth Management Division), who helped make the possible donation. âIf the last year has taught us anything, it’s that tough times can affect us without warning. The more we are able to prepare for these times, the better we can support each other and get through these times. “
In addition to her pantry, Ginny’s Helping Hand also collects lightly used clothing and household items.
