Putnam Bank Foundation Contributes $1,250 To Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters

The Hartford Courant (Putnam, CT) June 17, 2011

"The Putnam Bank Foundation has recently donated $1,250 to Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters for the ongoing support of the mentoring programs for over 150 at-risk children in Northeastern Connecticut, including the towns of Putnam, Killingly, Pomfret and Plainfield. Nutmeg's Northeast Connecticut mentoring program was established in 2008 due to funding provided by the State of Connecticut's Office of Policy and Management. The program continues as a direct result of the ongoing funding made available by the Putnam Bank Foundation.
'With the assistance of Putnam Bank,' said Laura Green, president & chief executive officer of Nutmeg, 'we've been able to benefit a great many deserving children in the area. In addition to consistent financial support, senior management at Putnam Bank has taken a decidedly hands-on approach to youth mentoring. It's one of the reasons we presented the bank one of our Community Partnership Awards in 2009. As a matter of fact, you can't get more hands on than Bob Halloran, Putnam Bank's president & chief executive officer. Bob has personal experience as a 'Big Brother' (friend, confidant and role model) to a local boy.'" Read More
