Berkshire Bank Will Take Tuesday Afternoon Off to Give Back
PITTSFIELD — All Berkshire Bank locations will close at noon on Tuesday, June 7 to allow all employees the ability to participate in volunteer projects from noon to 4 p.m.
So far, 1,133 Berkshire Bank employees across all regions are scheduled to participate in work assignments as part of the bank’s Xtraordinary Day. This number is still growing, and is anticipated to reach 95% total employee engagement.
Employees will volunteer at Stanley Park, Greater Springfield Habitat for Humanity, YMCA of Westfield, ReGreen Springfield, Southwick Rail Trail, West Springfield YMCA, Amelia Park Children’s Museum, Birthday Wishes, Children’s Study Home, YMCA of Greater Springfield, Community Survival Center, and Girls Inc. of Greenfield.
The bank will also host a contest called Catch Us in the Act, through which it encourages customers to take a photo of bank employees performing a volunteer service and post the photo to social media using the hashtag #xteam. Each submission will be entered to win $100 for the nonprofit of their choice; two winners will be selected per region.
