Country Bank, a full-service financial institution serving central and western Massachusetts, has made donations to local schools that participate in the bank’s Savings Makes Sense School Banking program.
Each school received a $250 Visa gift card to assist with back to school supplies and other necessary personal protection equipment items.
“During these challenging and uncertain times, our communities need us now more than ever,” said Jodie Gerulaitis, vice president community relations at Country Bank.
“We know how difficult it is for the schools to obtain all the supplies they need when budgets become tight. We hope this donation is a reminder that we are all in this together.”
Country Bank is offering new educational resources for all students in grades K-12 through online financial literacy lessons found at www.countrybank.com/student-banking. Parents, teachers and students are encouraged to use this valuable resource to continue the conversations around saving and budgeting.
