Charles River Bank is proud to make the donation of $850 to the Medway Public Library. The donation resulted from one of Charles River Bank’s 100th Anniversary Celebration programs, where the bank hung 100 wind chimes throughout the towns where its branches are located – Medway, Bellingham, and Mendon.
The wind chimes were a free CRB 100th Anniversary commemorative gift for each person who found one hanging around town. A special card attached to each set of wind chimes asked the person who found it to post a picture and list the location of where their 100th Anniversary wind chimes was located and submit the information via CRB’s Facebook page or e-mail. In
Medway, 34 wind chimes were placed both inside local businesses and outside in public areas. The Bank made a donation totaling $850, which represents $25 per wind chime located in Medway.
Charles River Bank’s Senior Vice President of Customer Care & Relationship Development Ann Sherry presented the $850 donation check to the Medway Public Library Director Margaret Perkins. Sherry stated, “We are happy that as a result of the participation of so many Medway residents in our 100th Anniversary Celebration windchime program, we’re able to help the Medway Public Library continue their valuable programs and expand their book, e-book and audio book offerings.”
For 100 years, Charles River Bank has focused on serving local individuals, families and businesses. The Bank supports organizations that deliver valuable programs to the local community, especially those that benefit young people, and chose to reach out to a local organization that had similar priorities. The library was a natural choice because of the wide ranging programs they deliver to community, from children to adults.
