"I lost my grandmother and mother to Alzheimer's and I don't want another family to endure this horrific disease." This was conveyed by North Shore Bank Commercial Loan Operations Officer, Maureen Meletis during a recent check presentation to the Alzheimer's Association, Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter. Meletis, who is also on the Board of Directors for the organization, recommended them as a recipient of the bank's monthly Jeans Day for Dollars collection. Donating $5 each Friday during June 2017 for the right to wear jeans, NSB employees raised $1,460 during their month long effort.

The mission of the Alzheimer's Association is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
The money raised by North Shore Bank will help to fund critical programs and services that directly help those living with Alzheimer's, as well as their family and caregivers. Fundraising efforts like this not only help fund the work we do, but raises awareness for the disease.
