For more than 170 years, People’s United Bank has been a proud and active member of the communities it serves, investing time and money to address the needs of individuals, families, businesses, and neighborhoods.
People’s United Bank employees provide countless volunteer hours serving on boards, teaching financial education classes, participating in fundraising events, and supporting numerous causes throughout the year.
Among the outstanding New York volunteer projects was a summer-long food program created by two People’s United Bank Brentwood branch employees. The program helped to address both the nutritional and educational needs of low-income children by bringing together community partners who provided activities and a healthy lunch to more than 120 participants.
In Connecticut, a group of volunteers from People’s United Bank helped freshen up an emergency family shelter operated by Homes with Hope in Westport. The team beautifully transformed the upstairs of one of the homes by painting the bedrooms and hallways on three floors of the emergency shelter.
In Boston, employees volunteered for kitchen duty at Community Servings to help provide home-cooked meals to individuals who are battling various illnesses, including cancer, Parkinson ’s disease, and lupus. Community Servings provides nearly 2,500 meals a day that are tailored to the specific dietary needs of its clients who reside in 18 different cities and towns in Massachusetts.
People’s United Bank is proud of the way in which its employees build strong communities and provide local support to organizations through a variety of community involvement activities.
Congratulations People’s United Bank!
