New London – Through its partnership with the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago, First State Bank recently received a $20,000 COVID-19 Relief Grant to support non-profit organizations who have been impacted by the pandemic.

The bank has chosen to distribute the funds to thirteen food pantries throughout its market area for the purchase of Wisconsin-produced dairy products.

“By designating these funds for the purchase of cheese, milk and other Wisconsin dairy products, these dollars can benefit not only families in need but our local dairy producers as well,” commented First State Bank Vice President of Marketing, Brenda Hansen. “We are grateful to the Federal Home Loan Bank for making this grant opportunity available.”

Area food pantries that are receiving funds as a result of this grant include Clintonville Area Food Pantry, Interfaith Food Pantry in Plover, Manawa Area Community Food Pantry, Operation Bootstrap of Portage County, Salvation Army in Stevens Point, Soup or Socks in Marshfield, South Wood County Emerging Pantry Shelf (SWEPS), St. Vincent De Paul Food Pantry in Marshfield, St. Martin Food Pantry in Cecil, Washington Center Community Cupboard in New London, Waupaca Area Food Pantry, Community Alliance Church Food Pantry in Withee, and Missionary Baptist Church Food Pantry in Greenwood.
