PUTNAM — Various non-profit organizations and programs throughout Windham and New London counties received funding from Putnam Bank and the Putnam Bank Foundation in FY 2018/2019 totaling over $100,000.
School-based mentoring programs, emergency food assistance, healthy-eating programs, Norwich backpack program, rapid re-housing for the homeless, youth sports teams, and children’s programs aimed at developing a love of literacy and the arts — these are only a few examples of where Putnam Bank and the Putnam Bank Foundation contributed financially to help the needy, care for children and improve life in our local communities. For the last few years, the Putnam Bank Foundation has been a sponsor of the Town of Putnam Summer Al Fresco and fireworks and the River Fire Series, The Last Green Valley Walktober, Norwich Rock the Docks, and Day Kimball Healthcare. They fulfilled pledge commitments to Natchaug Hospital and the Regional YMCA.
“As a community bank we have a vested interest in making our communities better and stronger for us and future generations. We’re not just in the community; we are community to the core. We have a responsibility to not only provide products and services but also to help to enhance the quality of life in the communities where we serve,” said Thomas A. Borner, Putnam Bank’s president and CEO. “We see giving back to the community as part of our mission and our responsibility.”
