Staff of Catskill Hudson Bank (CHB) took time out of their busy schedule to take the Shopping Cart Challenge at Pete’s Market on Monday, November 9 at 9 a.m. Debbie Reimer, manager of CHB Narrowsburg Branch, was the lucky shopper.

Reimer was cheered on by coworkers Joann Letendre, Laurel Anderson and Sandi Jay, and ran around Pete's collecting as many groceries as she could in only three minutes. The value of the final amount of food that was collected was $267. All groceries will be donated to the Narrowsburg Ecumenical Food Pantry.

Catskill Hudson Bank wanted to give back to the community and filling the food bank in time for the holidays. The video of the event was filmed by Isabel Braverman of The River Reporter.
