Country Bank gives back during National Day of Giving
Posted on November 27, 2019
Country Bank continually prides itself on giving back within the communities they serve, each and every day. This year, however, during National Day of Giving on December 3rd they have committed to “walk the walk” for one day across the region – from Springfield to Worcester! Assembled with a team of its staff, business partners, board members and corporators they will be participating in events throughout the area that will enrich and impact the lives of those that need it most.
The day will begin in partnership with the National Coalition of the Homeless where 50 beds for 50 children in Springfield will be constructed at the Mass Mutual Center. Back at Country Bank’s corporate office in Ware, staff members will partner with the USO to assemble 75 Veterans Packages for the brave men and women of our country. During the afternoon team members, in partnership with Provision Ministries, will head to the eastern part of the region at the DCU Center to assemble 250 backpacks for the homeless in Worcester. To round out the season of giving, all Country Bank branch locations will be collecting new winter hats, scarves and mittens from December 2nd through December 21st; all winter items collected will be donated to local shelters and organizations throughout the communities.
National Day of Giving (Giving Tuesday) takes place the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. On this day everyone is encouraged to come together for one common purpose, to celebrate generosity and to give back to their communities and those less fortunate. Community support has been part of Country Bank’s mission since its inception in 1850. During this season of giving, they look to continue in supporting organizations whose missions are similar — helping friends and neighbors in area communities; after all, it’s the reason for the season.
