NEWBURYPORT – Newburyport Bank recently donated a total of $3,000 to two local charities.
The bank donated $2,500 to the Anna Jaques Hospital Aid Association to support its Great Chefs Night,” an annual event and the flagship fundraiser for Anna Jaques Hospital.
“The dedicated women and men at the Aid Association do an incredible job, year after year,” said Lloyd L. Hamm Jr., bank president and CEO, in a press release.
“And there’s no better example of that than their Great Chefs’ Night, an extremely popular fundraiser that helps fulfill their mission of providing measurably high-quality medical care. The Anna Jaques Hospital Aid Association is a true gem, and we’re proud to support it.”
In addition, Newburyport Bank donated $500 to the Amesbury Rotary Club, an organization that has been serving the community since 1925. The money will help support the Rotary’s many efforts, including youth classroom reading programs, distribution of dictionaries and bicycling safety.
In announcing the donation, Hamm called the Amesbury Rotary Club “the bedrock of community service.”
