PR Newswire

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va., Oct. 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The BCTCares Foundation, a philanthropy founded by the employees of BCT-Bank of Charles Town, also known as The Community's Bank, announced yesterday it raised $56,000 through its annual Pack The 'Pack program in support of local backpack food charities focused on food-insecure children. The donation equaled $14,000 for each of the four partner charities and will provide funding for food purchases going to local food-insecure school children, equating to approximately 5,600 take-home backpacks filled with enough food for two days (weekend). The fundraising effort was from July 1, 2022 through August 31, 2022. Donors to this worthy cause included the bank's clients, vendors, employees, Board of Directors along with many people from the communities surrounding the bank's offices in Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia.

"This year, our partner backpack charities saw food prices increase 40% to 50% along with significant increases in the number of children in need," remarked Alice P. Frazier, President and CEO of BCT. "Seeing our clients, employees, and local communities rally for the children with overwhelming generosity reminds me how resilient and strong our communities remain. As we continue this program in the coming years, I am confident we will help more children while at the same time grow closer together as individuals and organizations."  

For the Pack The 'Pack campaign, BCTCares has partnered with local backpack program charities who will purchase and distribute food using the funds donated. The local backpack program partners are:
