Reading Cooperative Bank recently committed to a 5-year donation of $25,000 to the Building Futures Campaign of the Woburn Boys & Girls Club. The funds will help the Club expand and update its current facility in Woburn. In addition to the monetary donation, RCB employees also go to the Club to meet with the kids and teach them about savings.
“We are very fortunate to belong to a community where we receive great support from the local business community. Reading Cooperative Bank goes above and beyond for our kids & teens by providing both financial and programmatic support. We are grateful to count Reading Cooperative among our friends and are thankful for their financial contribution to the Building Futures Campaign and their program support in providing crucial financial literacy education to our members.” – Julie A. Gage, Executive Director of the James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club of Woburn.
“The Boys & Girls Club is an integral part of the Woburn community, being a former club kid’s member myself, I know the important role this organizations plays in helping the kids. I am happy that we can help them with their expansion project and allow them to grow and better serve the community,” said Branch Manager, Danny Walbourne.
