ADAMS, MA – January 9, 2023 – Adams Community Bank ended 2022 by demonstrating its core values of supporting and promoting its community with $75,000 in donations to local food pantries, food banks, and fuel assistance programs.
ACB’s Senior Vice President of Communications & Community Engagement, Maureen Baran, presented donations to several Berkshire County nonprofits.
Adams Community Bank began its December donation efforts by presenting BCAC’s Fuel Assistance program with a $50,000 donation. This program is part of the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), a federally funded program to help low-income households with their energy costs. The program runs from November 1 to April 30 each year and covers the cost of various heating methods. This donation will help many families in the Berkshires stay warm this winter.
Bank President and CEO Charles O’Brien stated. “The steep and rapidly increasing cost of goods, gas, and food has led to daily challenges for the members of our community. Understanding the impact donations like these make in the lives of individuals and families, ACB is proud to be able to continue to drive change and support those in need.”
In addition, the Bank approved granting $15,000 to local food pantries from Williamstown to Great Barrington. ACB also presented $10,000 to The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts’ Mobile Food Pantry, which visits four towns in Berkshire County – Adams, Great Barrington, North Adams, and Pittsfield.
