Community is important for each of us. Having a friendly environment for our children to play and people willing to donate their time to keep us safe are important to the life of our local community. As a bank, we believe in supporting not-for-profit organizations that help to make our community a better place to live. Since October we have been sharing about the charities that it has been our pleasure to support during the course of the year. Now that it is December, this series of blogs will come to an end. Today’s blog will focus on two charities near our Milton branch and in the coming weeks we will feature our Highland Falls branch.
