Wakefield Co-operative Bank employees wore jeans to work last month to benefit A Healthy Lynnfield. The bank’s President & CEO, Jeff Worth, doubled the amount of money given from employees with a personal contribution out of his own pocket, and also provided an additional donation from the bank, bringing the total donation to $614.
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.
A Healthy Lynnfield was established in 2017 to increase awareness and provide education and resources on how to address substance use and chemical dependence, and to improve the lives of those struggling with addiction and mental health issues in a direct, respectful, honest and compassionate manner.
“On behalf of ‘A Healthy Lynnfield’ I would like to send a sincere “Thank You” to everyone at Wakefield Co-operative Bank,” said Phill Crawford, President of A Healthy Lynnfield. “This generous donation will help us realize our mission of providing education, awareness, and resources to combat substance abuse in the town of Lynnfield.”
