Operation Troop Support — Jeans Day

NSB Jeans Days support Operation Troop Support in Danvers

North Shore Bank personnel stopped by the 16 Trinity Street, Danvers headquarters of Operation Troop Support recently and presented the group with a check for $1,100. The proceeds of this donation were raised by bank employees as part of their weekly “Jeans Day” program. Each month, employees designate a different non-profit organization, and in exchange for $5, they are allowed to wear jeans each Friday. The accumulated funds are then donated to the chosen organization at the end of each month.


The timing of this contribution couldn’t have been any better, as it will help us defray some of the mailing costs that we will incur sending holiday packages to overseas troops. Operation Troop Support relies on the ongoing generosity of individuals, schools, churches, civic groups and of course businesses like North Shore Bank.”
