Heritage First Bank and the Community Kitchen are uniting for a project to raise funds to keep meals coming to those in need in our community. The need has expanded because of the coronavirus outbreak and, at the same time, the kitchen has had to adapt to serving clients on a to-go basis.

The biggest need is money. To keep the kitchen going, Heritage First Bank is accepting donations through its drive-through lines at all three office during business hours. The bank’s lobbies are closed except for scheduled appointments so the drive-in lines and night deposit boxes are best equipped to accept cash or checks.

“Food is essential to life, and during this difficult time that we all are facing, Heritage First Bank is honored to assist our neighbors at the Community Kitchen as they continue to meet the needs of our community.

“Effective March 24, all locations of Heritage First Bank will be accepting donations for delivery to the Community Kitchen. Donations can be made at the drive-through windows or through the night/after hour deposit vaults. Please make checks payable to the Community Kitchen, or note same on the envelope. Donations can be made on-line at www.romefloydcommunitykitchen.org

Help us to help those who are providing food to our friends and neighbors.
