North Brookfield Savings is proud to be a strong supporter of local school systems and the talented and ambitious students who attend them. They believe that every child, regardless of their financial circumstances, should have the opportunity to start the school year feeling confident, excited and ready to learn. That is why North Brookfield Savings Bank is kicking off the fifth year of their overwhelmingly popular Back-to-School Supply Drive.


Throughout the entire month of August, North Brookfield Savings Bank will be collecting school supplies and monetary donations at all branch locations in North Brookfield, East Brookfield, West Brookfield, Ware, Belchertown, Palmer and Three Rivers. All donations collected will be delivered to local public schools to be distributed to school children who may not have the needed supplies to start their year. To get things underway, the Bank kicked off the fundraiser by purchasing over $500 in supplies. The branch employees, equipped with brightly patterned backpacks, lunchboxes, pencil cases, notebooks and various other fun supplies, are getting creative with their “Back-to-School” themed tables, in hopes it will encourage those visiting the branch to donate as well.


Some suggested school supply donation items that can be dropped at any North Brookfield Savings Bank branch location are:

  • Colored Pencils
  • Washable Markers
  • Erasers
  • Glue Sticks
  • Scissors
  • Tissues
  • New Backpacks (unisex)
  • Lunchboxes
  • Spiral Notebooks
  • Pocket Folders
  • 12” Standard Rulers
  • #2 Pencils
  • Pencil Sharpeners

“North Brookfield Savings Bank is incredibly proud to once again host the Back-to-School Supply Drive. We want all children to begin the school year with the essential supplies they need, in turn giving them the confidence and enthusiasm that allows them to continue to learn successfully,” said Andrea Healy, First Senior Vice President and Director of Human Resources. “It was so amazing to witness the generosity displayed during our first Back to School Supply Drive. Customers, community members and our employees were so giving and really showed how much they care for the children of our schools. We look forward to seeing that same generosity this year!”
