bankHOMETOWN CONTRIBUTES $12,800 TO LOCAL UNITED WAY CHAPTERS
OXFORD, MA: Michael Hewitt, President and CEO of bankHometown, announced the bank has raised $12,800 during their Annual Giving Campaign benefiting three local chapters of the United Way.
Chapters of United Way are vital links between local non-profit organizations and the residents who live in those towns to ensure better lives for those less fortunate in our communities. These funds have been exclusively raised by bankHometown employees over the past year.
bankHometown employees, throughout their 13 branches and Operations Center, have been participating in this bank wide Annual Giving Campaign for more than 30 years. In addition to their monetary support, employees volunteer at a variety of events with the United Way and their partner organizations, including a bank-wide “Day of Caring” held each September.
The chapters that benefited from this year’s campaign are:
United Way of Webster and Dudley, Massachusetts
United Way of Southbridge, Sturbridge and Charlton, Massachusetts
United Way of North Central Massachusetts
Tina Puza, Assistant Vice President and Branch Manager at bankHometown’s Auburn Office, coordinated this year’s successful campaign for the bank. She said, “
I am so thankful for all bankHometown employees that have either made donations or have volunteered their time for United Way this year. The resources and dedication that the United Way provides to our communities are invaluable and we thank them for all that they do on a daily basis. I truly feel that together we are helping those in need and making a positive difference in our communities.”
