West Shore Bank Spirit of Giving to provide 697 meals. 

LUDINGTON — West Shore Bank, in partnership with Shop-N-Save of Ludington, Hansen Foods in Hart, Family Fare in Manistee, and Shop-N-Save in Benzonia, will distribute 697 Christmas meals to food banks in Oceana, Mason, Manistee and Benzie counties as a result of its recent Spirit of Giving fundraising efforts.  Representatives from area charities gathered Wednesday for the West Shore Bank Spirit of Giving luncheon where results were announced and funds for the meals were distributed.

For four weeks funds totaling $8,614 were collected at the bank’s branches in Oceana, Mason, Manistee and Benzie counties. Contributions were made by employees, residents and businesses. Arrangements were made and coordinated with each partner to purchase a complete meal at a special pre-determined price.

“The Bank staff and I truly appreciate the individuals and businesses that support this cause,” said Raymond Biggs, president and CEO of West Shore Bank.  “Helping those struggling in our own community during the holiday season is what makes this ‘Spirit of Giving’ effort so important.  We’re committed to finding ways we can make a difference in our local communities and providing a meal at Christmas is one way we can do that.”
