North Brookfield Savings Bank Supports Second Chance Animal Services with Pet Supply Drive

North Brookfield Savings Bank kicked-off Spring with their first ever Pet Supply Drive. All donations will directly support Second Chance Animal Services, a community-based, non-profit organization dedicated to animal welfare.

This drive, which ran at all North Brookfield Savings Bank locations from April 1st through April 30th collected over 730 items, including over 200 pounds of Dry Pet Food! In just one month we were astonished at the generosity from the community members and employees alike.

Not only has North Brookfield Savings Bank recently made their annual contribution to help second chance defray the cost of fundraising events, but the Bank also partnered with Second Chance by sponsoring this Pet Supply Drive to benefit the organization.

“It’s amazing that North Brookfield Savings Bank’s fundraiser for Second Chance was so successful, we greatly appreciate the assistance” said Second Chance Development Director, Lindsay Doray. “Throughout the pandemic, citizens and businesses alike have been amazingly generous. We continue to be so grateful for all of North Brookfield Savings Bank’s continued support.”

“North Brookfield Savings Bank is proud to continue our partnership with the Second Chance Animal Services,” said Marco Bernasconi Jr., North Brookfield Savings Bank President. “It is an unfortunate truth that many people struggle to afford Vet Care, Pet Food and other Resources for their pets, often having to make the difficult choice between expenses. heating their homes, feeding their family, or other important needs. Every donation received, no matter what amount, will help local pets in need.”

North Brookfield Savings Bank is committed to supporting their local communities, expressed in 2 of the Bank’s Core Values as “Support Our Communities” and “Share Kindness”. Acts of kindness and generosity are contagious and spread far beyond the first action. Now more than ever we must support our communities to ensure our citizens and their furry friends are taken care of. North Brookfield Savings Bank is proud to be that partner not just now but for years to come.
