RAYNHAM, MASSACHUSETTS, December 20, 2018.

During the month of December, Bridgewater Savings Bank collected non-perishable food items for local food banks. The food donated will help feed over 200 families throughout the area.

Also during the month of November, Bridgewater Savings pledged to donate $5 for every new page like received in the month of November.
