North Brookfield Savings is proud to be a staunch supporter of local school systems and the talented and ambitious students who attend them. Especially after the toll this past school year has taken on our students and teachers alike, we are glad to be able to step up and provide some much-needed support to start things off right. We 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 their 4th year of the 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 will kick off the fundraiser by purchasing supply donations to display at each branch. The branch teams, 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:

  • New Backpacks (unisex)
  • Lunchboxes
  • Wipes
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Child sized face masks
  • Spiral Notebooks
  • Pocket Folders
  • 12” Standard Rulers
  • #2 Pencils
  • Pencil Sharpeners
  • Pencil Case
  • Colored Pencils
  • Washable Markers
  • Erasers
  • Glue Sticks
  • Scissors
  • Tissues

 

“North Brookfield Savings Bank is incredibly proud to once again host the Back-to-School Supply Drive. It has been a difficult year for students, parents and educators and we hope that we can make the new school year a little bit easier for everyone. 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 and grow successfully,” said Andrea Healy, Senior Vice President, Chief Administrative and Human Resource Officer. “It was so amazing to witness the generosity displayed during our first Back to School Supply Drive, when I joined the NBSB Team. Customers, community members and our employees were so giving and really showed how much they care and place an importance on our students and educators and the tools they need to start off on the right foot. We look forward to seeing that same generosity this year!”
