Local Charities Benefit From Checking For Charity Promotion

 

JEWETT CITY, CONNECTICUT, October 11, 2017… Jewett City Savings Bank has donated a total of $2,000 to six local non-profit organizations on behalf of customers who opened new personal and business checking accounts during the Bank’s recent Renovation Celebration.

According to Kevin Merchant, president and CEO, the Checking for Charity initiative provided the opportunity for new checking account customers to support the charitable organization of their choice. As a result of the campaign, donations were made to United Community & Family Services, Jewett City Fire Department, Slater Library, Griswold PRIDE, Griswold Historical Society, and Saint Mary’s Food Pantry.

“We were pleased to include neighboring organizations in our celebration,” said Merchant. “Community-building is as significant to us as the re-modeling of our Main Office. These groups help to foster a sense of community, and we are happy to support their efforts.”

The Renovation Celebration followed several months of extensive restoration, re-modeling, and modernization of the Bank’s Main Street headquarters in Jewett City. In addition to the Checking for Charity initiative, celebration activities included special offers, giveaways, and weekly prizes from local merchants.
