Savings Institute Bank & Trust Employees Work to Alleviate Hunger & Homelessness

Dec 08, 2016

WILLIMANTIC CT – Each quarter of the year Savings Institute Bank & Trust employees come together to help a local cause through the bank’s 100% employee-funded Caring and Giving Program. While the holiday season is happy for many, it also brings to light the fact that while we enjoy food with our families, many do not. That’s why the third quarter of 2016 focused on alleviating hunger and homelessness. Deserving organizations such as Lucy’s Hearth of Middletown RI, WARM Center of Westerly, RI, Enfield Loaves and Fishes of Enfield, CT and No Freeze Hospitality Center of Willimantic, CT among others received donations that totaled more than $3,600.

“We’re proud to be able to make a difference in the communities we serve through the kind donations of our employees this holiday season,” stated Bill Anderson, Senior Vice President and Caring and Giving Program Chairperson.

The Caring and Giving Program began in 2000 and has donated more than $200,000 to worthwhile community organizations over that span. In 2016, Savings Institute Bank & Trust employees plan on giving over $13,700 to the deserving programs they have selected.
