Community Good Works

Aug. 8, 2014

Atmark Apartments, Bridgewater Savings Bank and others gave back to the community this week in Banker & Tradesman's weekly roundup of banks and brokerages doing good for their communities. 


Atmark Apartments 

Atmark Apartments recently donated $5,000 to the Cambridge Fire Relief Fund following the grand opening of its newest apartment complex in Alewife. Cambridge Mayor David Maher set up the fund to provide aid for nine local families displaced by a recent nine-alarm fire.


Bridgewater Savings Bank

Raynham-based Bridgewater Savings Bank's charitable foundation has donated $1,000 to Middleboro's Start Strong - Finish Strong Program at Middleboro High School.

The Community Dividend is part of the bank's long-term mission to help improve the quality of life of its clients, communities and employees.

The bank also gave $39,184 to The SHINE Initiative, a nonprofit organization founded in 2004 by Fidelity employees that raises awareness about mental illness in children and young adults. Other dividend recipients included Montachusett Home Care, Health Alliance Foundation and Horace Mann Educational Assoc.
