Monson Savings Bank believes that one of its primary missions as a community bank is to be a virtuous corporate citizen. The Bank fulfills this responsibility by giving back to the communities where it conducts business. One of the many ways that Monson Savings Bank gives back to their communities is with annual efforts to support a local non-profit, United Way of the Pioneer Valley.

Every year the Bank’s Human Resources Department arranges a donation and pledge drive to benefit the United Way of Pioneer Valley. The annual Monson Savings Bank United Way Campaign and online pledge drive runs for two weeks. During this time employees are encouraged to donate to United Way via a onetime donation or pledge a reoccurring deduction from their payroll for the upcoming year. During the most recent campaign, held at the end of 2023, the generous team at Monson Savings Bank donated and pledged a total of $5,184.

Beyond the annual pledge drive, this year Monson Savings Bank employees raised an additional $1,063 through a fun, but competitive, internal, bank wide bingo game and $695 through the Bank’s TGIF Dress Down Program. The community bank also provided a corporate donation of $1,000.

In total, Monson Savings Bank helped to donate $7,942 to the United Way of the Pioneer Valley in 2023!

“The past several years have been incredibly challenging for many people. From the pandemic to economic struggles, now more than ever folks need help. This is where United Way steps in to bridge the gap by providing food and other essential services to those in need,” said Dan Moriarty, President and CEO of Monson Savings Bank. “We have an amazingly generous team at Monson Savings Bank who is honored to help United Way of Pioneer Valley fulfill their mission.”
