Bearingstar and The Bearingstar Insurance Charitable Fund Donates Nearly $17,000 to Community Food Banks Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic is causing a massive increase in hungry families. We are thrilled to donate nearly $17,000 to these food pantries across CT and MA so they can do what they do best — feed people in need within our communities.
