Charles River Bank Joins Salvation Army
December 20, 2010(MEDWAY, MA)
Tis' the season for giving to others, and Charles River Bank is participating with lots of spirit. Each year, the Bank adopts 2 or 3 families registered with the Salvation Army. But this year, Lt. Krystal Boring of the Milford Salvation Army post had a special request of the bank. She asked if instead of adopting families with young children, the bank would be willing to adopt twelve teenagers -ranging in age from 12 to 17 - for Christmas. Because these teens understand how much the Salvation Army has helped their families, many of them actually volunteer at the Salvation Army center themselves to help others.
Sr. Vice President Ann Sherry and Marketing Assistant Ashley Jolicoeur, who coordinate the bank's Christmas adoptions each year, were thrilled to help these deserving teens. Dozens of Charles River Bank's employees immediately offered to buy gifts, and the gift bags were delivered to Lt. Krystal Boring at the Salvation Army at 29 Congress Street, Milford on Thursday, December 16th.
"Charitable organizations like the Salvation Army are an important resource for those who are experiencing difficult times," confirmed Jack Hamilton, President and CEO, Charles River Bank. "The Bank's staff is committed to helping those in need, and especially at this time of the year, we are doing what we can to make the holidays brighter for some of our neighbors."
