Jim Brown, President of The Bank of Bennington, announced this week that the Bank has completed its annual giving to community food cupboards and fuel funds. This year, The Bank of Bennington is donating $25,000 to more than 20 area organizations in 11 towns.
Primarily supporting the good work of food cupboards and heating assistance programs, these November and December donations help low income Vermonters during the holidays and beyond into winter. President Brown said, “We are a community bank. Our corporate structure as a mutual bank means we don’t have any shareholders, and our dedication is to our customers. We believe that by helping low income households, we benefit the entire community, customers and non-customers alike”
Over the past ten years, The Bank of Bennington has shown its commitment to the people in the towns it serves by donating nearly $650,000 to area non-profits in support of the needy, the arts, children, and education.
