York Food Pantry Receives $500 from SIS Bank Employee Donation Program

SIS Bank is changing its name to Partners Bank effective July 1, 2019.

SIS Bank/Partners Bank CSA/Teller Dawn Whiteside (far right) of the Bank’s York branch was selected as the most recent recipient of the Bank’s Employee Donation Program. She presents this donation to the York Food Pantry of the York Community Service Association, which was accepted by (left to right) Executive Director, Michelle Surdoval and Food Pantry Manager, Maureen Monsen. SIS/Partners’ York Branch Market Manager, Toni Joerres, joined Whiteside for the presentation.

Many of us don’t have to worry about food and where our next meal will come from. But for some, food insecurity is a real issue; one that must be dealt with daily. SIS Bank is therefore pleased to announce that the York Food Pantry is receiving a $500 gift from the Bank as part of its Employee Donation Program. Dawn Whiteside is the 37th employee to have the honor of naming an organization for the donation program.

The York Food Pantry is part of the York County Service Association (YCSA), a local, nonprofit organization in York that serves low-income families going through difficult times. In addition to running the weekly Food Pantry, the YCSA offers financial support to help pay for rent, fuel or any other living expenses to help people move through a crisis.

Whiteside, a CSA/Teller at SIS’ York branch, recognized the needs of her fellow community members for food and proper nutrition and so selected York Food Pantry as her charity of choice.

“Thank you, Dawn, for so thoughtfully choosing this organization,” says SIS Bank President & CEO Blaine Boudreau. “Food is a basic necessity that is often taken for granted, and this donation will help to keep the pantry stocked with nutritious items that these deserving individuals and families so need.”
