    bankHometown TO DONATE MATCHING FUNDS TO CONNECTICUT TEEG
     
    OXFORD, MA:  Michael Hewitt, President and CEO of bankHometown, announced that the bank will be making a $5,000 matching donation to TEEG Thompson (CT) Ecumenical Empowerment Group) to be used towards the purchase of a food delivery truck.
     
    Hewitt said “as a local community bank, we were able to quickly respond to TEEG’s need for a delivery truck.”  The demise of the old truck resulted in TEEG’s inability to collect large food donations.  Hewitt added “the $5,000 match contribution will enable TEEG to leverage their fundraising efforts to more quickly acquire the truck. We were impressed that TEEG’s use of a new truck would also benefit other local food banks.” 
     
    TEEG ran a Giving Tuesday campaign on Facebook & received an offer from Rich and Karyn Dibonaventura of Longmeadow Auto to be the first community match donor. TEEG will be announcing their need for a new box truck on WINY radio.
     
    Anne Miller Executive Director of TEEG said “the bank’s match and our fundraising puts us well on our way to meeting our goal.” She added, “TEEG has been fortunate to have received support from bankHometown to improve our community food pantry and other programs.”
     
    TEEG is a community-centered nonprofit agency with programs in community services, early education, prevention, senior education and outreach services. They have been working to meet the needs of low income individuals and families since 1987.
     
    Last year, TEEG provided services to more than 2,600 residents of Northeast Connecticut through more than 42,000 individual out-reach efforts.
