October 31, 2017 – Portsmouth, NH — Piscataqua Savings Bank’s annual charity drive, called the Spirit of Giving Campaign, is now underway in downtown Portsmouth. This year, the Bank will collect donated items to support the New Hampshire Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NHSPCA) of Stratham, an organization that nurtures animals through rescue, rehabilitation and adoption in the face of animal cruelty.

The Bank has provided drop boxes to collect donations inside their lobby on Pleasant Street. Included on the NHSPCA’s Wish List are items for cats, dogs, rabbits, small mammals and birds, horses and farm animals, and miscellaneous office supplies for the organization. The NHSPCA is also accepting gift cards to Pet Life, Amazon, PetCo and Market Basket. For a full list of accepted donations, visit www.piscataqua.com.

“We are so proud of Spirit of Giving and the many community members who contribute to it,” said Wanda Fontaine, Assistant Vice President and Assistant Operations Officer at the Bank. She serves as the Chair of the holiday giving campaign. “We look forward to making the holiday season a little brighter for a different group each year, and it warms our hearts to support the NHSPCA and help provide safe and loving homes for animals.”

Piscataqua’s drop boxes are filled and delivered over the holiday season. Your donations are welcome anytime during the Bank’s main lobby hours: Monday-Friday 9:00am to 4:00pm, and Saturday 9:00am to 12:30pm.

The only mutual savings bank based in Portsmouth today, Piscataqua Savings Bank is dedicated to serving local individuals and families and has been a cornerstone of the Portsmouth community since 1877. Information is available at www.piscataqua.com.
