KENNEBUNK, Maine — As part of its "Community Promise" program, Kennebunk Savings has announced that it has made $5,000 in contributions to area nonprofit food pantries.

Kennebunk Savings made the donations knowing that this time of year can be particularly difficult given the holidays, the upswing in the need for food and the painful choices that many families must face.

According to Bradford C. Paige, president and chief executive officer of the bank, "It's very gratifying to be able to contribute to organizations that will have an immediate impact in reducing the burden families are facing. It is our mission to help strengthen our communities; putting food on tables, especially during the holiday season, is just one way we can contribute."

The bank made $1,000 donations to York County Food Rescue, York County Shelters Programs Inc., York Community Food Pantry, the Kennebunk Community Food Pantry, and the Seacoast Family Food Pantry in Portsmouth, N.H.
