North Shore Bank

Volunteer Activities at North Shore Bank

Providing support to the community can come in many forms — not all of them financial. Donating our time and expertise to non-profit groups and organizations is something which we take very seriously at North Shore Bank. Our employees volunteer at many local non-profit agencies and serve on a multitude of area boards; routinely providing counsel in a variety of key operational areas.  It’s kind of funny . . . we like to think of ourselves as the first line of defense when it comes to community service.

See what we mean below . . .

Volunteer Activities

My Brother's Table

North Shore Bank employees periodically serve meals at My Brother’s Table — a Lynn-based non-profit that provides daily meals to the hungry, 365 days a year, and which projects to serve over 100,000 this year.

BridgeHouse Family Shelter

North Shore Bank employees regularly participate with the BridgeHouse Family Shelter in Lynn for a holiday toy drive, donating toys and clothing to benefit the families served by the non-profit. This organization provides an alternative to temporary housing arrangements and seeks to bridge the gap between homelessness and independent residency.

Each year the bank also conducts a school supply drive for BridgeHouse.  Proceeds from the drive benefit the homeless children and teenagers residing at and served by the organization. The 2014 drive featured all eleven North Shore Bank branches and resulted in multiple carloads of notebooks, backpacks and other miscellaneous supplies.

Community Events

Okay it’s no secret that we really enjoy being out in the community. Whether we’re working a water station at a charity road race or just handing out cool swag at a city-wide function, you can always count on North Shore Bank to “represent.” In fact, last year we were involved in events in more than ten different cities and towns across our area.
