Quaint Oak Bank Completes Successful Food and Toy Drive
Quaint Oak Bank recently announced the successful completion of its annual food and toy drive. As part of their continued support for the local community, Quaint Oak Bank employees spearheaded both drives. Collection boxes at Quaint Oak’s offices in Allentown and in Southampton, PA allowed employees, customers and friends to donate non-perishable goods and toys for the programs.
Quaint Oak Bank donated in excess of 600 pounds of food along with cash contributions to food banks at the Second Harvest program in Allentown and the Southampton Food Bank at Jesus Focus Ministry. In addition, over 150 toys were collected and donated to the annual Toys for Tots campaign.
“We are committed to giving back to our community,” said Jacqueline Cercone, Allentown Branch Manager. From last year to this year, we were able to double the amount of our donations to these very worthy organizations. Louise Abele, Southampton’s Branch Manager stated, “As a member of the communities we serve, it is both our duty and our privilege to help out where we can.”
