Monson Savings Bank Gives $1,000 to the Monson Free Library
Monson Savings Bank’s President and CEO, Dan Moriarty, recently met with Hope Bodwell, Monson Free Library Director, to present a $1,000 donation of behalf of the Bank. The donation was made as a part of the 2022 Monson Savings Bank Community Giving Initiative, where the public was given the opportunity to vote on which non-profits received a donation from the community bank.
“I am very pleased to visit the Monson Free Library and present this donation on behalf of the Bank. The library makes a positive impact on the Monson community by giving residents free access to reading materials, programs, and other important resources.” said Dan Moriarty, President and CEO of Monson Savings Bank.
The Monson Free Library is enthusiastic about serving the residents of Monson. It is a very valuable resource center for community members of all ages. The library is focused on community priorities, culture, and education. It offers educational tools through diverse collections, services, technology, and programming.
“This donation is extremely special to us because the community voted for the Monson Free Library to receive it. This showed us how important the library is to the members of our community,” said Hope Bodwell, Library Director of the Monson Free Library. “We truly appreciate the support that Monson Savings gives to the towns that it serves and for the votes submitted through the Bank’s annual Community Giving Initiative.”
The donation will be of benefit to the Monson Free Library, a place where the public has access to valuable library programs.
Bodwell continued, “The community voted on us, and the donation will directly benefit the community. When we receive donations the money collected goes right into cultivating programs for all ages. Programming is not in our budget, it is funded through the generosity of our Friends of the Library, partner organizations, and grants. Monson Savings Bank’s Community Giving Initiative donation will also help fund these programs. For example, Monson Savings’ generous donation will be funding our Music Tuesdays on the Patio this year.”
