Town Square Media will be teaming up with NBT Bank and St. Mary’s Food Pantry for the NBT Food Drive. Anyone wishing to participate is asked to donate any non-perishable food items that will help local families in need have a better holiday season. Monetary donations are also greatly accepted and for every $10 donated, St. Mary's Food Pantry is able to purchase $100 worth of food!

Donations will be accepted at any NBT Bank location in Oneonta. Donations will be accepted up until December 16th. In a season of giving, lend out a hand to those families who need it the most.

For more information, contact Linda Burns at (607) 432-3920 (ext. 212).  Just leave a message or email
