Jim Brown, President of The Bank of Bennington, announced that the Bank has completed its annual giving to community food cupboards and fuel funds. During the 2018 year-end giving season, The Bank of Bennington donated $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”
The Bank of Bennington is a mutual bank with deep commitment to the area. It is the only bank headquartered in Bennington County, with branches in Bennington, Arlington, Manchester, and Rutland.
