Wakefield Co-operative Bank President & CEO, Jeff Worth, presented Lynnfield for Love with a check for $280 from a recent employee ‘Jeans Day’, which included a $140 personal donation from Worth out of his own pocket.
Every month, bank employees are encouraged to wear jeans to work on designated ‘Jeans Days’ in exchange for a small donation to a community organization. The Jeans Day recipient for March was Lynnfield for Love, whose mission is to spread kindness, celebrate diversity, and connect the community.
"We are very grateful to Wakefield Co-operative Bank for this generous donation,” said Jennifer Lupien, President of Lynnfield for Love. “We love what they are doing and can't wait to see the kindness they spread next! Their support will go a long way towards helping us fulfill our mission of spreading kindness and celebrating diversity."
The bank’s donation will be used to support Lynnfield for Love’s 2nd annual ‘One Love’ event taking place Saturday, April 7th at Centre Church. Activities include crafts, face painting, and decorating kindness rocks and lunch bags for Meals on Wheels, and writing notes of encouragement to those in addiction recovery and homeless shelters. Attendees are welcome to bring any of the following:
A new stuffed animal to give to a foster child via Pieces of Home
Non-perishable food items for Good Hopes Food Bank of Lynnfield
Used or new games, puzzles, and DVDs for Horizon House, a center for people with mental illnesses
