THOMASTON – Thomaston Savings Bank employees raised a total of $2,045 for the Brian O’Connell Homeless Project. The Bank’s Denim Days allow employees to wear jeans on Fridays throughout the month for a small donation to a preselected local non-profit which provides vital services to the community.
If employees donate a total of $1,000 or more throughout the month, the bank will contribute an additional $1,000 to that month’s cause.
“The Brian O’Connell Homeless Project Inc. is forever grateful for the donation received from Thomaston Savings Bank Denim Days.
The support we receive from the local community is truly remarkable,” said President and founder Donna Finneran.
The Brian O’Connell Homeless Project is an organization that collects donations to aid in providing those who are homeless with food and services.
Donations are used for two main goals; providing Brian Bags and building mobile showers.
Brian Bags contain basic necessities which include a first aid kit, food and other items to help with well-being.
Mobile showers are built to encourage and improve hygiene and conditions for those who are facing troubled times.
The organization also accepts and encourages volunteers and prayers.
