Bank of Canton’s Brookline Branch is giving away green recyclable grocery tote bags in order to support the Town of Brookline’s ban on plastic bags and polystyrene products.
For each customer donation of toiletry products made to the Brookline Food Pantry, staff at Bank of Canton’s branch, located at 166 Harvard Street, will give the customer a green recyclable grocery tote bag to help support the townwide ban on plastic bags and polystyrene products.
“We have long supported the Brookline Food Pantry,” said Assistant Branch Manager, Barbara Hewitt, who organized the program. “Now we can support this critical organization while simultaneously supporting Brookline’s ban on these non-recyclable plastic products.
“The Brookline Food Pantry needs toiletries this winter, and we want to help the organization secure them for Brookline residents in need,” she said.
The public is invited to donate such items as soap, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrushes, toothpaste, toilet paper and deodorant are welcome. Additionally, Bank of Canton welcomes handmade winter items, such as scarves, mittens, and socks, to help the families in need throughout our communities. They are proudly displayed on the Mitten Tree in the lobby.
