PUTNAM — The Jewett City Savings Bank presented the American Legion Post #13 with a $10,000 donation May 27, according to Post Commander Brian Maynard.  
He said, “This is our largest single donation ever in the history of our post.”
The check was presented by Kevin Merchant, president and CEO; Diana Rose, senior vice president; Mike Alberts, vice president; and Amanda Heibel, branch manager. Receiving the check for the post were:  Maynard; Mike Vassar, senior vice commander; and Eric Quinn, finance officer.  
These funds will be included in money raised by the Legion’s annual golf tournament (Sept. 3). The timing of the donation coincides with the renaming of the golf tournament to the Henry Breault Medal of Honor Recipient Golf Tournament.  “This donation is genuine symbol of our community giving back to a town with a rich history of military service.” Said Maynard
All donations to Post #13 stay local and help support American Legion scholarships, banners throughout town, Boys and Girls State, Tri-Town baseball, veteran affairs and rehabilitation, he added. “On behalf of the members of American Legion Post #13 I sincerely thank everyone at Jewett City Savings Bank who made this possible.”
The Jobs for New England Recovery Grant Program was offered by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston to member financial institutions to assist small businesses and non-profit organizations that have experienced significant losses due to the pandemic.  As a member, Jewett City Savings Bank was able to reserve grant funds for eligible organizations in the bank’s service area.  Jewett City Savings Bank focused its support to those organizations that had limited opportunities to participate in other funding sources that become available through the CARES Ace and other government programs.
