Thomaston Savings Bank employees raised a total of $2,055 for Friends in Service to Humanity (FISH) with their August Denim Days. The Bank’s Denim Days allow employees to wear jeans on Fridays throughout the month for a small donation to a preselected local non-profit which provides vital services to the community. If employees donate a total of $1,000 or more throughout the month, the Bank will contribute an additional $1,000 to that month’s cause.
“Friends in Service to Humanity of NWCT was so very pleased to be the recipient of a generous gift from Thomaston Savings Bank and their Denim Day fund for the month of August! Bank employees have always been so thoughtful and supportive to us as we serve the hungry at the FISH NWCT Food Pantry and the homeless at the FISH Shelter, located in Torrington. Since March of 2020, we have faced challenging times, and this gift is a real morale booster and will be used towards our operations serving our neighbors in need. Thank you!” - Deidre DiCara, Executive Director
