Boiling Springs Savings Bank CAP Program

Designate the pantry as the alliance charity on your personal or business bank accounts at Boiling Springs. The bank will make quarterly donations to the pantry based upon the number of alliance accounts the pantry has and the total dollar balance across all the supporting accounts. More designated pantry accounts means more donation dollars that the bank will give us!
