Martin Connors, President of Rollstone Bank & Trust and its Foundation, said, “The Bank’s Charitable Foundation has provided over $1.8 million to local charities and non-profit organizations since its inception in 2005. We are proud of the success of the golf tournament, and very grateful to our supporters.”
“Rollstone Bank’s generous donation to United Way of North Central MA’s (UWNCM) early childhood literacy initiative, Footsteps2Brilliance (F2B), will support the launch of the platform to local communities and increase outreach efforts to all residents with children from birth to third grade,” said Maribeth Janssens of the United Way of North Central MA. “This gift will have a significant impact in closing the gap that some children experience when they enter kindergarten. We are very grateful for Rollstone Bank’s help.”
