Merrimac Council on Aging — Jeans Day

NSB Jeans Days donations support the Merrimac Council on Aging

An impressive contingent of North Shore Bankers recently made the trip over to the Merrimac Council on Aging — presenting the group with a check for $1,400.  This donation was raised by bank employees as part of their weekly “Jeans Day” program. By donating as little as $5 per week, employees can wear denim to work on Fridays; the proceeds of which are then pooled and donated to designated non-profits throughout the area. As part of the merger with Merrimac Savings Bank last fall, employees nominated the Merrimac organization as their Jeans Day recipient for January.


We are so thankful to the employees of North Shore Bank.  What an incredible gift to the community. The money raised will be used to support the Merrimac Council on Aging Nutrition Program which includes Peggy’s Pantry and the meals served at the Senior Center.
