National Bank of Coxsackie donates to Athens Food Pantry

Written By Editor on 2/6/24 | 2/6/24

Coxsackie, NY – The National Bank of Coxsackie (“NBC”) presented the Athens Food Pantry with a donation in support of their mission to respond to the food needs in their local community. The funds were secured through the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York Small Business Recovery Grant Program. NBC is a member of the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York and applied for the funds made available through this special program.

The Athens Community Food Pantry was started as an outreach program in the 1960s. After closing for a year between 2006 and 2007, with the help of countless volunteers, the food pantry was re-opened and became a member of the Regional Northeast Food Bank in 2008. The pantry is open Tuesdays and Thursdays, and deliver to the senior citizens in the community on Fridays.  

“We are proud to be able to offer support to the Athens Food Pantry” John Balli, NBC Chief Executive Officer said.  “The efforts and support they provide is vital to the Town of Athens and we are happy to be able to be a part of it.” 

"Our pantry is honored and grateful to be the recipient of this grant from NBC.” Said Heidi Multari, Treasurer for the Athens Food Pantry. “The number of households coming to the pantry in need of food assistance has jumped from an average of 54 a month in 2022 to 64 a month in 2023. This is quite significant for our small community.  These funds will be used to purchase much needed food items from the Regional Food Bank as well as from local stores.  We remain committed to helping those in need in our community and believe that no one in our community should go hungry.”

Since 1852, The National Bank of Coxsackie has been the premier bank of choice for thousands of customers. With eight branch locations ranging from Coxsackie to Glenmont, including their new commercial loan production and administrative office in Latham, the bank serves the greater Capital Region. National Bank of Coxsackie is committed to supporting their communities they operate within. The bank is a wholly-owned subsidiary of NBC Bancorp, Inc. (OTCPK:NCXS).
