North Shore Bank Employees Make a Jeans Day Donation to The Pettengill House PEABODY, MA — (www.northshore-bank.com) On Fridays, customers of North Shore Bank will find their favorite bankers wearing casual attire and something a little unusual for the ordinary banker - denim jeans. That’s because at North Shore Bank, Friday is Jeans Day. In exchange for $5 each week, employees wear jeans to work while the proceeds collected are pooled together for the month and then donated to an area charity that is recommended by the employees. Recently the Bank presented The Pettengill House with a check for $2,200 from the proceeds collected during April. Formed in 1994, the mission of the mission of The Pettengill House is to support and empower children and families by providing education, comprehensive case management and basic needs; and by supporting and contributing to individual and family stabilization, personal growth and development.
We just finished up with the 18th season of The Saturday Night Meals Program which is run by an amazing group of core volunteers along with approximately 50 additional volunteers who cook and deliver meals to those in need once a month. They were honored this year by the American Red Cross as a Community Hero. We are so appreciative of the work they do in service to around 350 households per month!
And here it is...the first harvest of the season! Volunteer Flo Mungillo with the first produce grown in our very own, volunteer-run garden! This produce for our food pantry was also supported by Pennies for Poverty Newburyport who contributed money for seeds.
