During the holiday season, the Buckeye Community Bank staff gave of their time and talents to help brighten the days of many in need in our community.
Second Harvest Food Bank
The Buckeye team got into the holiday spirit by spending time packing more than 200 boxes of food for Second Harvest Food Bank of North Central Ohio. The boxes were distributed to families and children through the Elyria Schools’ food pantry. The packaging effort was just one of the many engagements Buckeye does throughout the year to support Second Harvest and its constant fight against hunger.
This year, Buckeye employees again worked hard to ensure that area children would have a good Christmas morning by participating in the annual Chronicle-Telegram’s Not Forgotten Box tradition. The gift drive was started 62 years ago by the newspaper in cooperation with The Salvation Army. The Buckeye family of staff and clients gave generously with donations of toys, games and clothes to provide local families with brighter holidays.
