West Shore Bank Provides Families With Meals For Holiday Season

More than 1,000 families will be receiving a meal this holiday season, thanks to West Shore Bank’s Spirit of Giving Project.

It’s a fundraiser the bank puts on each year.

The effort runs for three weeks at their bank locations to support families in Mason, Manistee, Benzie and Oceana counties.

The bank partners with grocery stores and donates the money to local food pantries.

This year, bank offices raised more than $9,000.

West Shore and Pennies for Heaven foundation also chipped in for a total of nearly $15,000.

“This is really something special for our employees. It’s an opportunity for us to give back and it’s just wonderful to know there’s families, 1,478 families that are really going to have a nice Christmas with a good meal,” says Donna Yager, Vice President of marketing officer.

The bank is grateful to everyone who donated, and their partners in the project.
