It’s been a tradition at North Shore Bank to collect holiday gifts for many local charitable organizations who assist families in need at this time of year. Unfortunately, like everything else, this year is a little different. To adhere to our pandemic protocols, we will be suspending the placing of bins for gift collection in our branch lobbies. Instead, we have put together a list of some of the charitable organizations that we support along with information on how you can help. This year is harder than most for families in need.  We hope that you will consider making a donation. 
  • Citizens Inn – This year, Citizens Inn is not accepting gifts. However, they are asking for monetary donations.  For more information on Citizens Inn, or to make a donation on their giving page, visit
  • The Salvation Army – Both our Cabot Street and Enon Street branches in Beverly will be participating in The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program this year.  Each branch will be placing angel ornaments on their Christmas Trees (50 in total). The angels have a ribbon attached that recommends a gift for a family in need. If you would like to donate an unwrapped gift, please visit one of these two branches and speak with a representative.
  • Pathways for Children –This year, Pathways for Children is requesting Amazon gift cards and children’s books be shipped directly to them. You can find their Holiday Wish List at All items can be shipped directly to Pathways for Children, 292 Cabot Street, Beverly, MA 01915. For more information on Pathways for Children, visit
Thank you in advance for any contribution you can make to these charitable organizations.
