Teaming up for a good holiday cause

Thursday, November 29, 2012 by ANDREW MARK Special to The Press in Local News

The Egypt branch of First Northern Bank and Trust teamed up with St. Stephen's Episcopal Church to collect food for the Whitehall Food Bank last Wednesday.

They had worked together on a food drive last year, but this year did something a little different.

The bank collected donations for a month, using a tree that was on display in its office.

The tree allowed customers to pick a leaf which described what that customer could donate.

In addition to customers, employees of the bank also donated.
