Citizens Bank Donates $50,000 to Community Servings

Citizens Bank recently announced its donation of $50,000 to Jamaica Plain non-profit Community Servings for 2017. The organization will use the funding to provide home-delivered meals and nutrition services to individuals and families living with critical and chronic illnesses.

During a recent event at the Greater Boston Food Bank, over 130 Citizens Bank colleagues volunteered throughout the day inside the food bank warehouse – inspecting, sorting, and packing food and grocery products. The event occurred as part of Hunger Action Month, an effort calling on individuals to take action to fight hunger in their communities.

Their made-from-scratch, medically tailored meals meet the nutritional and medical needs of clients who are fighting illnesses like HIV/AIDS, diabetes, cancer, kidney disease, and many others. Community Servings offers 15 medical diets, with up to three combinations per client, and delivers to 20 cities and towns in Massachusetts.

This donation is part of $415,000 Citizens Bank has given across the state in support of Hunger Action Month to provide hunger relief, nutrition assistance, and help improve access to food for families.
