Beginning Monday, October 3rd, 2022 through Tuesday, November 1st, 2022, all branches of Arundel Federal Savings Bank will be collecting food donations for local pantries to support our communities this holiday season. During the Food Drive, collection boxes will be available in the lobbies of all five Arundel Federal Maryland branches: Annapolis, Brooklyn, Glen Burnie, Pasadena, and Severna Park.

We simply have the best customers and community support around our annual food drives which we've done for over 20 years. The response is always overwhelming and goes directly to the recipients selected by each Branch Manager. With the current state of the economy, we realize just how important local community food drives are to help provide holiday meals to those in need" said Tom Herpel, President and CEO. 

This year’s donations will go to a variety of organizations including:

Asbury Church Assistance Network, Inc. (A.C.A.N.), Severna Park

St. John Lutheran Church Annual Thanksgiving Basket Drive, Brooklyn

Heritage Baptist Church, Annapolis

Harundale Presbyterian Church, Glen Burnie
