Wakefield Co-operative Bank President & CEO, Jeff Worth, shared his gratitude for the bank’s employees and the local community during Thanksgiving by donating 100 turkeys and 65 gift cards.
Everyone who works at the bank was gifted a turkey or a gift card to Farmland in Wakefield, and for every bank employee, Worth donated two turkeys back into the community via Melrose Helps, Wakefield Food Pantry and Lynnfield for Love.
This is the 4th year Worth has provided bank employees and local families with a turkey or gift card to help with their holiday festivities. Melrose Helps received 33 gift cards to Shaw’s in Melrose, and Wakefield Food Pantry and Lynnfield for Love each received 33 turkeys, all of which were passed on to nearby local families before Thanksgiving.
“Here we are, a year after we eagerly prepared to say goodbye to a difficult 2020 only to find out that many of the challenges followed us right into 2021. But, just as we did last year we managed to find a way to overcome and triumph,” said Worth. “This is the time of year when we celebrate our families and warmly give to others who may appreciate a little extra help to celebrate theirs.”
