New Tripoli Bank Donates $2,500 to Parkland CARES Food Pantry
February 23, 2023
New Tripoli Bank donated $2,500 to the Parkland CARES Food Pantry as a show of support for their mission to feed and serve members of our community affected by and suffering from hunger.
“Parkland CARES is extremely grateful to New Tripoli Bank for their generous donation,” said Katrina Sundstrom, Executive Director for the Food Pantry, “The funds will be used to purchase Snack Pack items to feed the over 350 Parkland students who receive the bags each month.”
Parkland CARES opened its doors for the first time in 2019 to just 12 families and by the end of the year had grown to supporting over 100 households. When the COVID pandemic hit in 2020, the pantry switched to a contactless drive-thru model for distribution. Parkland CARES works closely with Second Harvest Food Bank, Orchard Hills Church, and many other community partners to fulfill its mission to feed the less fortunate in our community.
“The health and well-being of families is important to New Tripoli Bank,” said John M. Hayes, CEO of the Bank, “We see the amazing work that Katrina and the rest of the Parkland CARES team are doing to provide support for those who need help. We are glad we can help them continue to meet our community’s needs.”
