Reading Co-operative Bank Organized a Food Drive to Benefit the Burlington Food Pantry
BURLINGTON, MA – Thousands of residents in the town of Burlington go hungry every year. This week, Reading Co-operative Bank organized an employee Dress Down Day, in which employees could elect to wear denim jeans or skirts to work in exchange for non-perishable food items to benefit the Burlington Food Pantry just in time for the holidays. All food donations will be dropped off at the Burlington Food Pantry and then distributed as needed by People Helping People, Inc.
