SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — Jefferson Security Bank is continuing to spread kindness in celebration of its 150th anniversary.

As part of the bank’s 150 Days of Random Acts of Kindness, JSB donated 150 food items to CCAP Loaves & Fishes and 150 items to Jefferson County Community Ministries. In addition to the bank’s donations, JSB customers also participated in the food drive. In all, more than 700 pounds of food were donated.

“After the holidays are over, food pantries tend to see a significant drop off in donations,” Sara Wasson, the bank’s director of marketing and community relations, said in a news release. “We saw this as an opportunity to partner with our customers to make a difference. It is wonderful to see our customers getting involved in the Random Acts of Kindness campaign. They have helped make a big impact and we appreciate their commitment to making a difference within our communities.”

The Random Acts of Kindness campaign is the bank’s way of giving back to the communities that have supported it through the years, as well as a way to encourage kindness and generosity throughout the community.

The campaign kicked off in December with the donation of 150 toys to local organizations, including Community Networks Inc., Shenandoah Women’s Center and Toys for Tots.

During the past several weeks, JSB has continued to share other Random Acts of Kindness on its Facebook page using the hashtag
#JSB150RAK.
