Thomaston Savings Bank Employees Raise $11,050 for Local Community Organizations through Denim Days
Thomaston Savings Bank employees raised a total of $11,050 for local organizations through their Denim Days over the past several 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 were so surprised to have been the recipient of Thomaston Savings Denim Days in December! The timing was perfect, with the rising costs of heating this winter these funds covered that increase. Thank you to all the employees who donated." - Christine Nelson, Executive Director, Thy Eagle’s Nest
