The funds were contributed by Unity Bank employees and matched by the bank as part of a special annual holiday community service project that was started more than 10 years ago. “I am extremely proud of the generosity our employees continue to show in this important community service project, which seems to break donation records every year,” said Unity Bank President & CEO James A. Hughes. “More than ever before, food pantries are vitally important to many families struggling to make ends meet. As a community bank, it is a privilege to be able to support those in need through these great organizations.” Donations of $1,800 will be presented to a local food bank by each of Unity's 19 community branches, including New Bethany Ministries of Bethlehem from the Bethlehem.
