Fighting Hunger: Community Giving Update

For 60 years Northern Bank has maintained the firm belief that investing in our communities brings positive, measurable change. COVID-19 has had a significant impact on homeless families, especially with hunger. In response, Northern Bank has teamed up with Heading Home and restaurant clients to cover meals for people in the Heading Home shelters.

Established in 1974, Heading Home is Boston's leading provider of emergency shelter, transitional, and permanent housing for low-income families and individuals. When paired with financial literacy, life skills, and job training, their unique approach sets clients on a pathway to self-sufficiency. Since our founding, Northern Bank has maintained the firm belief that investing in our communities is an integral part of our continued success.

Our dedication to raising awareness to end hunger and assisting the community with housing needs has allowed us to make a significant difference in the communities we serve.

"Residents so far have loved the meals, especially being able to come home and have the work of cooking taken off of their plates is really something."

Our commitment to making a difference in people’s lives extends beyond just our clients and our employees, it extends to our communities, because we are all responsible for helping the communities we care about thrive and grow. That’s why we make it a point to volunteer at and support local charitable organizations.

Heading Home shared that "in the last six weeks, Northern Bank has donated and delivered 648 meals to families and individuals experiencing homelessness in Greater Boston." They went on to share a message from Larry, a Senior Program Coordinator at a Heading Home shelter - "THANK YOU! Everyone felt special and treated like royalty when they received their meals."
