Funds to help ‘people that really need it’
SOUTHBRIDGE — Cornerstone Bank, a community bank with 12 locations throughout central Massachusetts, is pleased to announce its recent donation of $54,196.62 to the United Way. This donation reflects an employee gift and matching contribution that together exceeded this year’s goal and last year’s gift.
The United Way is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the educational, economic and healthcare of individuals in need. Cornerstone Bank’s donation will support three, local United Way organizations: United Way of South Central Massachusetts, serving Southbridge, Sturbridge and Charlton; United Way of Webster Dudley; and United Way of Central Massachusetts, which serves 30 cities and towns. Locally, these organizations help with food insecurity, childcare, medical needs, counseling, legal services and much more.
“I am so proud we were able to raise funds for such an impactful organization again this year,” said Cornerstone Bank Vice President/Controller and United Way of South Central Massachusetts Treasurer Scott Dungey. “The employees here at Cornerstone Bank are so generous with their time and resources to help the communities that we serve. Being on the United Way Board of Directors, I know these funds will go to help people that really need it, especially with how difficult the past year was for so many in our area.”
“Cornerstone Bank has a deep-rooted commitment to giving back to the community,” said Cornerstone Bank Chief Executive Officer Todd Tallman. “We are pleased to play a role in supporting the United Way on their valiant efforts to support the needs of people around the world but especially those here in our own backyard.”
