Thomaston Savings Bank employees raised a total of $8,640 for local organizations through their Denim Days over the past few months. The Bank’s Denim Days allow employees to wear jeans on Fridays throughout the month for a small donation to a preselected local nonprofit 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.

We sincerely appreciate the support from the staff at Thomaston Savings Bank in fulfilling our Mission.” – Edwin Rodriguez, Director of Development & Public Relations, St. Vincent DePaul Mission of Waterbury
