Fidelity Bank is providing more than $50,000 in additional holiday support to more than a dozen Massachusetts food pantries to help people affected by the pandemic. The bank has donated more than $50,000 to various local organizations across the 14 locations where Fidelity Bank has full-service offices. This is in addition to the more than $100,000 Fidelity Bank gave to various causes earlier in the pandemic through its Caring for Our Communities COVID-19 Response Grants.
The money comes from Fidelity Bank’s LifeDesign Community Dividend, which donated more than $330,000 to more than 250 worthy organizations in Central Massachusetts last year. “We all have a duty to reach out to those in need who are enduring tough times due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Fidelity Bank Chairman and CEO Edward F. Manzi Jr. “It’s part of Fidelity Bank’s promise of being a caring bank that supports our community, clients, and colleagues.” Fidelity Bank has given out more than $2 million since the dividend program was formally named in 2013.
