Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has awarded the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Waterbury with a $25,000 challenge grant to benefit the programs and services of the Club. The grant is conditional upon a match from other donors, individuals, corporations, and foundations with the goal of raising a total of $50,000.

The challenge grant underscores the importance of the Boys & Girls Club to the Greater Waterbury community and the work it does with children and teens.
“The Boys and Girls Club plays an important role in the lives of children and families in Waterbury. Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation is honored to support an organization that is so vital to our community. And we hope this grant will get others in the community to step up and provide their support to this Club.”
