PeoplesBank Again Named a Top Corporate Charitable Contributor
HOLYOKE — The Boston Business Journal announced the region’s top corporate charitable contributors, and for the 10th year in a row, PeoplesBank is among the companies included on the list.
The region’s top charitable companies, which in many instances include the companies’ corporate foundations, will be honored at the magazine’s 12th annual Corporate Citizenship Awards on Thursday, Sept. 7 at Fenway Park in Boston.
“We are incredibly proud of the 94 companies that qualified for the list. They are all outstanding examples of the impact and importance of giving back,” said Carolyn Jones, Boston Business Journal market president and publisher.
The Boston Business Journal’s Top Corporate Charitable Contributors list is composed of companies that gave at least $100,000 to Massachusetts-based charities in 2016.
“Our mutual charter supports everything we do and why we are succeeding as a community bank,” said Matthew Bannister, first vice president, Marketing & Innovation at PeoplesBank. “Because of our mutual charter and related values, we have a unique ability to help the communities we serve through volunteer efforts and millions of dollars in donations to charitable and civic causes.”
