Monson Savings Bank has a long and proud history of supporting literacy in their communities that continues on as the Bank celebrates their 150th Anniversary. Recently, Monson Savings Bank President and CEO, Dan Moriarty, met with Laurie Flynn, Link to Libraries President and CEO, to present her with a $1,500 donation. This donation was made as a part of the 2022 Monson Savings Bank Community Giving Initiative, where the public was given the opportunity to submit their votes asking the community bank to support their favorite local charitable organizations.
“Monson Savings Bank is proud to show our support to the wonderful local organization, Link to Libraries,” said Dan Moriarty, President and CEO. “Unfortunately, not all children have access to age appropriate reading materials, Link to Libraries fills this gap. This organization gives our local youth the valuable gift of reading, providing so many children in our communities with access to books. Because of Link to Libraries, children’s literacy and language skills are positively impacted, helping them to find success in their educational and life journeys.”
"We are very appreciative of Monson Savings Bank’s longtime support of Link to Libraries. Monson Savings is an incredible community partner, not only to our organization, but also to many others throughout our community,” said Laurie Flynn, President and CEO of Link to Libraries. “Thank you to everyone who voted for Link to Libraries in Monson Savings’ Community Giving Initiative. We are excited to put these funds to good use, purchasing books and distributing them to the children who need them most."
