A long-standing tradition with Charles River Bank is the annual Food Drive. Every year during the months of November and December, the Charles River Bank branches set up donation tables in their lobbies for customers and bank staff to make food donations to the Medway, Bellingham and Mendon Food Pantries. Items most needed by the Food Panties include: canned meals, dry foods such as cereal and pasta, other non-perishable food items, paper goods, diapers and personal hygiene items. Be on the look-out for the donation tables at your local branch over the next few weeks.
Charles River Bank—with assets of $235 million—was founded in 1915, and continues to offer a wide range of individual and business banking services. The Bank's Main Office is located at 70 Main Street in Medway, and new state-of-the-art branches are located on the Bellingham/Franklin town line on Route 140 and in Mendon at 1 Hastings Street, at the intersection of Rte. 16 and North Avenue. Charles River Bank also operates a branch in Medway High School that serves as an educational facility and full-service branch. In 2015, Charles River Bank contributed more than $40,000 to community non-profit organizations.
