OREGON In conjunction with Stillman Bank’s annual Christmas open house, the bank also held a food drive to benefit area families this Christmas.

Almost 900 pounds of non-perishable food items were collected during the weeklong drive.

Now in its fifth year, the bank’s annual food drive has collected almost 6,000 pounds of food since it began.

The food drive was Dec. 6 through 14 at all of the Stillman Bank branches.

Donations were made to the Bread of Life pantry at Stillman Valley Covenant Church, People Helping People in Byron, Lifeline in Oregon, Hand in Hand in Rochelle, Old Stone Church pantry in Rockton, and the Rockford Rescue Mission.
