Small Acts That Give Back
Small Act That Gives Back – Hometown HeroIn May, we gave community members the opportunity to nominate someone they know who goes above and beyond for other people. We received so many wonderful nominations, and we enjoyed learning all about the amazing things so many of our neighbors do to pay it forward each day. Congratulations to our four Hometown Heroes, Andrea Connelly, Phil Lemire, Peter Moore and Midge Landry! Thank you for all you do to spread kindness throughout our communities.
Small Acts That Give Back – Pay Your Heating Bill CampaignThis winter was certainly a tough one, which caused heating expenses to be higher than normal. In an effort to assist our members with their overwhelming heating costs, we held our Small Acts That Give Back – Pay Your Heating Bill Campaign. Throughout the month of March, members wrote to us and explained why they needed help with their heating costs from this past winter. We were thrilled to help four of our members pay their oil, propane, gas or electric bill. We hope this Small Act helped alleviate some of the financial burden this winter has caused.
National Oreo Cookie DayOn March 6th, we celebrated National Oreo Cookie Day! We delivered packs of delicious Oreos to our employees, and even surprised members by handing out the sweet treats in our branches. Nothing like a Small Act That Gives Back that also tastes yummy!
Small Act That Gives Back at Market Basket
We recently surprised shoppers at Market Basket on Fletcher Street in Lowell with Market Basket gift cards and a free tote bag. We certainly enjoyed seeing the smiles on our community members’ faces as they received a little gift to help with their grocery shopping.
Small Act That Gives Back at Muffins on Main
Our Small Acts That Give Back continued into the weekend, this time at Muffins on Main in Westford. Customers received a special surprise as they placed their order, and were inspired to pay it forward to other customers waiting in line. Visitors at Muffins on Main left motivated to extend their own community support to organizations in their neighborhoods.
