Monson Savings Bank Seeks Community Input on Charitable Giving
MONSON — For the fifth year in a row, Monson Savings Bank is asking the community to help plan the bank’s community-giving activities by inviting people to vote for the organizations they would like the bank to support during 2015.
“Every year, we donate more than $100,000 to organizations doing important work in the communities we serve,” said Steve Lowell, president of Monson Savings Bank. “For several years now, we’ve been asking the community for input on which groups they’d like us to support, and we’ve been so pleased by how many people participate.”
To cast their vote, people can go to monsonsavings.com/in-the-community.html. On that page, they can see a list of organizations that the bank has already supported in 2014 and provide up to three names of groups they’d like the bank to donate to in 2015. The only requirement is that the organizations be nonprofit and provide services in Hampden, Monson, Wilbraham, or Ware. The voting ends at 3 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 9. The bank pledges to support the top 10 vote getters and will announce who they are by the end of January.
