Savings Makes Cents Kick- off at the Morrison School
The third grade students at Morrison School in Braintree enjoyed the kickoff event for our Savings Makes Cents Program. Braintree Cooperative Bank sponsors this financial education program every year. When the students were asked what is was they were saving for, some of the answers were for college, for a Nintendo, or for an iPhone. Many children also shared how they earned their money – making their beds, washing the dishes, feeding the dog, etc. Thank you to Banky Bear, Sue Burns and Erin Bandini for teaching these students the value of saving money.

Community Service at Braintree Food Pantry

Dishing it Out!

It was a busy day at the Braintree Food Pantry as BCB volunteers served up dinner for several local families in need. As part of our commitment to the community, Anne Akoury (from our Loan Department) organized volunteers to shop, prep and serve a 3-course meal that was served at the Braintree Community Food Pantry located at the First Baptist Church in Braintree. With the help of Patty Bartoloni, Susan Burns, Bonnie Gibbons, Brian Robinson and Celina Tennant, several Braintree families were able to enjoy a hot meal that was prepared and served with care.
