 In Member News

PEABODY, MA —  North Shore Bank recently presented the
Saugus Family YMCA with a $1,500 contribution. The proceeds were raised by Bank
employees as part of their weekly “Jeans Day” program. In exchange for $5 each week, the
Bank’s staff can wear jeans to work with the funds collected, pooled and then donated to a
local organization. With this donation to the Saugus Family YMCA, the Bank’s Jeans Day
Program has now raised over $100,000 for local non-profits and charitable organizations
since its inception.

Erin Riley, Branch Manager of the Bank’s Lynn Fells Parkway, Saugus branch said:
“The focus of our Jeans Day program has always been to help local organizations and
initiatives that contribute to the strength of the communities we serve. We’re proud
to hit this $100,000 milestone. It says so much for the generous staff here at North
Shore Bank.”

As a part of the YMCA of Metro North, the Saugus Family YMCA is a diverse association of
men, women and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the
potential of youth, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility in
our community.

Julieann Garland, Branch Manager of the Bank’s Hamilton Street, Saugus branch added:
“The Saugus Family YMCA has been an advocate of healthy living for decades. We
felt that with the money raised through our Jeans Day program we had a wonderful
opportunity to support the children and families in our community.”

Ricky Baez, Director of Curriculum and Educational Advancement for the YMCA, said of
North Shore Bank’s contribution:
“We can’t thank North Shore Bank enough for their continued support and
generosity. A portion of these funds will go into directly supporting STEAM based
curriculum. With the addition of 4 new classrooms recently, this donation will help us
creatively fund projects, purchase materials and bring in specialists to create some
hands-on experiences for the children we serve.”
