MONSON, Mass. (WWLP) – Dan Moriarty, president and CEO of Monson Savings Bank, recently met Hope Bodwell, director of the Monson Free Library, to donate $1,000 on behalf of the bank.
The donation was presented as part of the Monson Savings Bank 2022 Community Giving Initiative, which gave the general public the opportunity to choose which charities received financial support from the local bank.
“I am very pleased to visit the Monson Free Library and present this donation on behalf of the Bank. The library positively impacts the Monson community by providing residents with free access to reading materials, programs, and other important resources. said Dan Moriarty, President and CEO of Monson Savings Bank.
Serving the Monson community enthusiastically is the goal of the Monson Free Library. Community residents of all ages will greatly benefit from this resource center.
Priorities for community, culture and education are the main concerns of the library. Through a variety of collections, services, technologies and programs, it provides educational tools.
“This donation is extremely special to us because the community voted for the Monson Free Library to receive it. It showed us how important the library is to members of our community,” said Hope Bodwell, Director of the Monson Free Library Library “We truly appreciate the support Monson Savings provides to the cities it serves and for the votes submitted through the Bank’s annual community giving initiative.”
The Monson Free Library, where the general public has access to beneficial library programs, will benefit from this donation.
Bodwell continued: “The community voted for us and the donation will directly benefit the community. When we receive donations, the money raised goes directly to cultivating programs for all ages. The programming is not in our budget, it is funded through the generosity of our Friends of the Library, partner organizations and grants. The Monson Savings Bank Community Giving Initiative grant will also help fund these programs. For example, the generous donation from Monson Savings will fund our Music Tuesdays on the Patio this year.
