Chelsea Groton Bank celebrated 170 years of serving the communities of southeastern Connecticut on July 3. In honor of this milestone, all Bank team members were invited to select a non-profit organization to be the recipient of a $100 donation from the Chelsea Groton Foundation, through the Acts of Kindness program. Through this year’s initiative, $21,800 was donated to organizations in the community whose causes are meaningful to Chelsea Groton team members.

“The Chelsea Groton team is passionate about the community we serve. Through Acts of Kindness, a program we started 10 years ago, we provide the opportunity for team members to have a say in the organizations Chelsea Groton supports annually,” explained Anthony A. Joyce, III, President and CEO at Chelsea Groton Bank. “Acts of Kindness has been incredibly well-received by team members and the organizations who are the recipients of the financial support, and we’re proud to have continued this program in celebration of 170 years in our community.”

Over $250,000 has been donated to the community through Chelsea Groton’s Acts of Kindness program since it began in 2014. Local organizations receiving donations include those whose missions support health and human services, arts and culture, animal welfare, education, and more.
