We are excited to share the results of the 14th Annual United Way Bag the Bounty Food Drive held in October. The ACNB Corporation Operations Center and the Bank’s offices with lobbies open at that time in Adams County and Hanover participated as collection points.
As you can imagine, the pandemic has hit the food pantries, shelters and soup kitchens very hard as they continue to work to keep their shelves stocked for the benefit of low-income families, unemployed and underemployed people, and individuals on modest fixed-incomes --- including the elderly and people with disabilities.
This year, a total of 2,098 pounds of nonperishable food, cleaning supplies, and other household items were donated by ACNB Bank’s customers and staff members.
The ACNB office located at 545 West Middle Street in Gettysburg, PA, collected the most items in pounds over any other participating community banking office with a total of 414 pounds. The ACNB office located at 675 Old Harrisburg Road took second place with 402 pounds.
Thank you for your generosity. We are truly grateful for the outpouring of community support for this ACNB Helping Hands initiative!
