West Shore Bank begins 12th annual Spirit of Giving campaign. 

LUDINGTON – West Shore Bank has begun its 12th annual Spirit of Giving campaign that will raise funds to donate Christmas meals to local families in Mason, Manistee, Oceana and Benzie counties. Each year West Shore Bank partners with area grocery stores and food pantries. Last year, the fundraiser provided 786 meals to area families. 

“Making a real difference is not only part of our mission, but something we take very seriously,” states Raymond A. Biggs, President and CEO of West Shore Bank. “Our bank staff looks forward to giving back and providing as many holiday meals as possible each year. With the financial hardship this year’s pandemic has had on our community, we feel that it’s more important now than ever to support each other, and providing Christmas meals for this meaningful campaign is one way we know we can make a difference.” 

Each grocery partner provided special pricing for a complete meal ranging from $10.50 – $15.00. With the money raised, West Shore Bank will distribute meals to food pantries in Mason, Oceana, Manistee and Benzie counties. To help stretch dollars even further, West Shore Bank has agreed to match the first $2,500 raised. 

Any individual or business who would like to make a tax-deductible donation can stop by West Shore Bank during regular banking hours, donate online at westshorebank.com or mail a check made payable to “Spirit of Giving Fund” to West Shore Bank, Attn: Spirit of Giving, PO Box 627, Ludington, MI 49431. Donations are accepted through Friday, November 27.
