Merrimack County Savings Bank (The Merrimack) wraps up #NHBanksGiveBack, an annual statewide volunteer campaign coordinated by the NH Bankers Association. Throughout the month of October, The Merrimack was one of 29-member banks that stepped up to give back to the communities they serve.

“This year, we decided to host a peanut butter and cereal drive, specifically for children struggling with food insecurity,” said Linda Lorden, President of The Merrimack. “I’m grateful for our incredible employees who are dedicated to giving back to the communities where we live and work.”

The food drive was held at all eight Merrimack branches and distributed to the following local pantries:

  • Friendly Kitchen (Concord)
  • Twin Rivers Food Pantry (Franklin)
  • Bow Food Pantry
  • Hopkinton Food Pantry
  • Hooksett Food Pantry
  • Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter
  • The Upper Room Food Pantry (Derry)

In addition to the food drive, The Merrimack also donated $58,552 to several other food pantries and local nonprofit organizations during the month.
