Wakefield Co-operative Bank employees wore jeans to work earlier this month to benefit Lynnfield resident, Cara Maney, who is currently battling Hodgkin Lymphoma. The bank’s President & CEO, Jeff Worth, doubled the amount of money given from employees with a personal contribution out of his own pocket, bringing the total donation to $460.

Every month, bank employees are encouraged to wear denim to work on designated Jeans Days in exchange for a small donation to a community organization. Cara lives in Lynnfield with her husband Joe and four daughters, ranging in age from first grade to recent college graduate.

“Cara and her family have been through a lot this year; she a fighter but has a lot to get through so all the community support we can offer will be greatly appreciated by the Maney family,” said Leo Barrett, SVP, Chief Loan Officer who also resides in Lynnfield and has known Cara for many years.
