Ware, MA – Country Bank’s Employee Charitable Giving (ECG) program recently donated $26,000 to the Jimmy Fund. The ECG program has raised more than $168,000 to support the Jimmy Fund since 2006. Country Bank had a record breaking year as they exceeded their fundraising goal of $25,000 and also took home first place in the corporate team challenge. Eric Devine, Bonnie Trudeau-Wood and Jeremy Toussaint, Team Captains for Country Bank lead the team with fund raising activities to help them exceed their goal.
Employees donated raffle baskets for the staff to take chances on, paid to wear jeans on casual Fridays, ran a bus trip and joined the online fund raising team to reach this level of support, along with a very generous matching donation from Country Bank. “I am in awe of the commitment from the team at Country Bank and their support of this great charity year after year. We are very proud to be the coaches for this team and know that our efforts make a difference. We really hit a grand slam again this year!” stated Bonnie Trudeau-Wood, Chair of the Employee Charitable Giving Program and Jimmy Fund Coach for Country Bank.
Two members from the Country Bank team have also been invited to the Fenway Fantasy Day on Saturday, June 1st for batting practice at the Green Monster.
