BankGloucester will be giving away a total of $15,000 to community organizations at a brief reception at the bank on Monday, October 17th beginning at 5pm.
This is the fourth year in a row that they have held their “Banking for the Community” program where the public votes for a slate of community groups that aid others; write-in nominations are also welcomed. These votes determine how the money is distributed. Top three awards are $5,000, $3,000 and $1,000. Twelve others groups will each receive $500. BankGloucester believes in giving back to the community and this is one of the ways that they do that.
Perhaps you would like to cover this event considering the positive impact it has on Gloucester residents. The reception will begin at 5pm in the lobby of the bank at 160 Main Street. Bank President, Patrick Thorpe, will be presenting the checks to the winners.
