NSB Employees Make a Jeans Day Donation to the Alzheimer's Association, MA/NH Chapter

PEABODY, MA — (www.northshore-bank.com) On Fridays, North Shore Bank customers can find their favorite bankers donning their laid-back apparel and something a little unusual for the ordinary banker - denim jeans. That’s because at North Shore Bank, Friday is Jeans Day. In exchange for $5 each week, employees wear jeans to work while the proceeds collected are pooled together for the month and then donated to an area charity that is recommended by the employees.

North Shore Bank presents the Alzheimer's Assoc., MA/NH Chapter with a Jeans Day donation.

Recently the Bank presented the Alzheimer’s Association, Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter with a check for $1,460 from the proceeds collected during June. 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.

Maureen Meletis, Commercial Loan Operations Manager at the bank, recommended the Alzheimer’s Association as a recipient for their Jeans Day program.  Meletis, who is a member of the Association’s board of directors and has been the chairperson of the Alzheimer’s Association Central New Hampshire Walk to End Alzheimer’s for the past two years said:

I lost my grandmother and mother to Alzheimer’s and don’t want another family to endure this horrific disease.” She continued, “As an Alzheimer’s Advocate and Chair of the Central NH Walk I continue to use my voice to shine a light on Alzheimer’s to make this devastating disease a national priority by increasing research funding and one day have a World without Alzheimer’s.

Kate Corriveau, Alzheimer’s Association, New Hampshire Development Officer said,

"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.” She went on to state, “Fundraising efforts like North Shore Bank's, that take place in the community, not only help fund the work we do, but raises awareness for the disease and the help the Alzheimer's Association can offer. We look forward to continuing this partnership for a long time to come."
