School Supply Drive Begins in August at North Brookfield Savings Bank

North Brookfield Savings Bank Assistant Vice President/Branch Manager & Consumer Loan Manager Cindy Fountain, Assistant Vice President/Marketing Manager Caitlin O’Connor, Supervisor Jessica Shimansky and Senior Vice President/Human Resources Director Andrea Healy proudly display some of the school supplies donated in 2018 by generous community members, customers and NBSB employees through the North Brookfield branch.

It’s hard to believe that it’s already time to start preparing for back to school. Nevertheless, for North Brookfield Savings Bank that is exactly what they are planning to do, as they announce the August 1st start of their popular Back to School Supply Drive. With the help of the community, the Bank is committed to helping local students to start the school year off feeling confident, excited and prepared to learn.

North Brookfield Savings Bank will be collecting school supplies and monetary donations at 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 do not have the needed supplies to start their year.

“It is North Brookfield Savings Bank’s pleasure to once again host the Back to School Supply Drive and work with our local neighbors and businesses to support the youth of our communities,” said Senior Vice President/Human Resources Director Andrea Healy. “Returning to school can be a very exciting time for children and families but it can also be overwhelming. By working together to ensure the children in our communities have all of the needed supplies to start their school year off with confidence, we are helping them to have a successful school year. We are extremely appreciative of the generosity shown in past years and hope another successful fundraiser this year!”

North Brookfield Savings Bank is committed to excellence and the support of their local communities. The Back to School Supply Drive fundraiser, which aids in the success of students, is one of the many ways the Bank has displayed their dedication. The Bank kicked off the fundraiser by purchasing $500 in supplies which were distributed to each branch. In an effort to promote the fundraiser and encourage those visiting the branch to donate, Bank employees are having fun setting up their “Back to School” themed display tables with brightly patterned backpacks, lunchboxes, notebooks, pencil cases, and various other fun supplies they were provided with.

“We hope everyone will stop by to see the Back to School Supply Drive display in our branches and make a contribution,” said Assistant Vice President/Marketing Manager Caitlin O’Connor. “We frequently have children visit our branches who are excited to see the colorful school supplies set-up and it often becomes a perfect learning opportunity for parents doing their banking to discuss the topics of generosity and gratitude with them.”
