MONSON — For the eighth year in a row, Monson Savings Bank asked the community to help plan the bank’s community giving activities by inviting people to vote for the organizations they would like the bank to support during 2018.
“We are very pleased that this program continues to be something that people truly appreciate, and how it really benefits the communities we serve,” said bank President Steve Lowell. “We started to get inquiries about when it was going to kick off back in early fall, and we decided to start it earlier this year to give people more time to rally participation. We were thrilled to hear from so many people.”
The top vote getter was Boy Scouts of Western Massachusetts, followed, in order of votes, by Wilbraham United Players, Shriners Hospitals for Children, Scantic Valley YMCA, River East School-to-Career, Link to Libraries, Rick’s Place, Academy Hill School, Behavioral Health Network at Valley Human Resources, and Monson Free Library.
“Our communities voted for more than 210 organizations this year,” Lowell noted. “I have to say it feels great to be part of such a wonderful community full of concerned, active, and committed citizens.”
