Giving back to the communities we serve is one of RTN’s core values. We proudly support organizations and non-profit agencies, as well as events and activities in the local communities where RTN branches are located. One such organization is Our Neighbors’ Table in Amesbury.
Our Amesbury branch is collecting non-perishable food and toiletries now through March 31, which Our Neighbors’ Table will distribute to those in need in the Amesbury area. RTN is one of ten credit unions and banks in the Amesbury area that have joined together to support this food drive.
Our Neighbors’ Table provides groceries, fresh foods, and toiletries each week to more than 200 households across four pantry locations. Additionally, it delivers groceries and hot meals to home-bound individuals in three towns. In 2014, Our Neighbors’ Table assisted more 2,200 individuals.
Food items most needed include canned soup with meats (beef and chicken), beef stew, canned chicken, baked beans, canned fruit (no applesauce or peaches), and canned meals (such as SpaghettiO’s and ravioli). Personal care items needed most include full-sized bottles of shampoo, deodorant, razors, toothpaste, and toothbrushes.
We encourage you to join with us to help those in need. Donations can be dropped off at RTN’s Amesbury branch at 100 Macy Street during regular business hours (Monday through Thursday, 8 am to 4 pm; Friday, 8 am to 5 pm; Saturday, 8 am to noon).
