Belmont Savings Bank, Leominster Credit Union, South Coast Improvement Co. and more share the spotlight in this week's roundup of local banks, brokerages, and construction companies giving back to their communities.  

 

Belmont Savings Bank

Tom Strachan has won Belmont Savings Bank's Power-Up Savings contest. To enter the contest, fans of the bank's social media pages posted pictures of items for which they were saving. Stachan has received $500 and will use the money for a trip to Munich for Oktoberfest.

Belmont Savings also awarded $250 to two additional participants, Molly Greeley and Laura Carter. Greeley will use her winnings to save for college. Carter will donate her money to the Uganda Water Project, a non-profit humanitarian organization that works to provide safe accessible drinking water in Uganda.

 

Jeanne D'Arc Credit Union

Jeanne D'Arc Credit Union raised more than $5,000 for Lowell General Hospital's TeamWalk for Cancer Care.

TeamWalk funds help Lowell General Hospital's Cancer Care Center pay for medication, nutritional supplements, nursing visits and other services. More than 50 friends, family members and employees of Jeanne D'Arc Credit Union participated in the May 18 event. 

 

Leominster Credit Union

Leominster Credit Union raised $815 for Habitat for Humanity of North Central Massachusetts at its recent Shred-a-Thon.

Each year at the free event, the credit union partners with Habitat for Humanity, and participants may make a donation to the organization. 

Leominster Credit Union will also sponsor the town's Starburst firework display for the 19th consecutive year. The credit union donated $8,000 to the event's planners. The celebration is scheduled for Saturday, June 14, with the following Sunday set as a rain date.

 

MutualOne Bank

The MutualOne Charitable Foundation has awarded $2,500 to the Performing Arts Center of MetroWest (PAC). The grant will help provide scholarships for PAC's educational theatre program, which serves up to 300 youth from ages 8 to 18 each year, providing a range of skills from building scenery to learning dance and drama.

 

North Brookfield Savings Bank

North Brookfield Savings Bank will sponsor blood drives at four of its branches between June and September to help support Baystate Medical Center, the only Level 1 trauma center in Western Massachusetts. The blood drives will be conducted inside BMC's bloodmobile on various dates in Palmer, Belchertown, West Brookfield and North Brookfield.

 

Reading Co-operative Bank

Reading Co-operative Bank's Wilmington branch manager, Nancy Brown, met with students at Shawsheen School earlier this month and held a Teach Children to Save seminar.

The bank also provided each of the 354 students with an RCB coloring book, crayons and a $mart $aver worksheet to help them to better understand Brown's lesson.

 

South Coast Improvement Co.

Marion-based South Coast Improvement Co. (SCI) recently delivered pillow puppets to patients at Franciscan Hospital for Children in Boston. The pillows were a way for the company to say thank you to the hospital and its patients for their patience while SCI completed renovations at the hospital.
