West Shore Bank launches annual Spirit of Giving Christmas meal campaign.

“Partnering with local organizations to distribute meals specifically in our area is one of the most rewarding aspects of the holiday season for not only the bank, but also our employees, who surprise us with their generosity and drive to make a difference each year,” said Raymond A.
