The Jermyn, Jessup and Olyphant branches of Community Bank N.A. are among those helping to restock local food pantries.

Community Bank N.A. branches across New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont have joined together to host a canned food drive throughout February. The more than 125 participating branches aim to collect 5,000 items for local food pantries and food banks.

This is the third consecutive year Community Bank N.A. has hosted a February food drive in honor of National Canned Food Month. In 2019, branches collected 4,127 nonperishable items for 30 local food pantries, shelves and banks. All Pennsylvania branches are participating.

To participate in the food drive, bring nonperishable canned food items to your local Community Bank N.A. by Feb. 28.
