Giving Tuesday, Bluestone Bank Donates to Food Pantry & Other Groups


Bluestone Bank and Bluestone Bank Charitable Foundation have announced that in 2022 they have donated $400,000 to local non-profit organizations, including $3,000 to the

Franklin Food Pantry. As an extension of the Bank's commitment to the community, the Foundation, in partnership with local organizations, provides financial support to create a positive impact. Funding priorities include affordable housing and homelessness, economic development and community partnership programs, health and human services programs, education and youth financial literacy, special project funding, and capacity building.

One of the most significant single donations from Bluestone Bank was $20,000 to support Old Colony Habitat for Humanity's recent initiative of building a home in Attleboro. This donation will go directly towards the materials needed to create a safe and sturdy home for a family in need.

Thirteen local food pantries in the communities surrounding Bluestone Bank's branch locations, in addition to Franklin Food Pantry, were also each given $3,000 in donations. Among the recipients are the Bridgewater Food Pantry,  Pembroke Firehouse Food Pantry, Marshfield Food Pantry, Raynham Food Basket, and West Bridgewater Food Pantry. In total, the Bank donated $42,000 to aid in providing food to those in need during this holiday season.

Additional recipients include, but are not limited to, Special Olympics of MA, Attleboro Arts Museum, Best Buddies Massachusetts, School on Wheels Massachusetts, Pro-Home, Inc., Massachusetts Bankers Association Charitable Foundation, and Sturdy Memorial Foundation, Inc. "As a community bank, we are always looking to support organizations that will directly benefit our local communities," said the President of Bluestone Bank, Meg McIsaac. "We are very fortunate that Bluestone was able to increase our charitable initiatives this year and support special organizations that truly make a difference in people's lives."
