Every year we donate over $100,000 to organizations doing important work in the communities we serve. We support local causes in the areas of arts, education, youth development and helping folks in need. We do so, because this work is aligned with our values and also because big banks often don't support local activities.

The Votes Are In!!

You may recall that in December of 2013, we asked you to help plan our community giving activities by inviting you to vote for the organizations you would like us to support during 2014. Well, the votes are in, and we are pleased to tell you that more than 900 votes were cast, and the top ten vote getters are: River East School-to-Career, Shriners Hospital for Children, Link to Libraries, Monson Free Library, Lupa Zoo, Two Town Trolley, Nomads of Hope, Boy Scouts of Western Massachusetts, Junior Achievement of Western Mass, Veritas Prep Charter School.

Thank you to everyone who voted. We are pleased to be part of a community that is so committed to helping people, voluntarismism, and to great causes.
