For three weeks West Shore Bank collected funds from employees, residents and businesses at its local branch offices.  Arrangements were made and coordinated with each partner to purchase a complete meal at a special pre-determined price.

“The bank staff and I truly appreciate the individuals and businesses that support this cause,” stated Raymond Biggs, president and CEO of West Shore Bank.  “Helping those struggling in our own community during the Holiday season is what makes this ‘Spirit of Giving’ effort so important.  We’re committed to finding ways we can make a difference in our local communities and providing a meal at Christmas is one way we can do that.”  

A total of $7,344.00 was raised, which included a $2,000 match from West Shore Bank.
