Spencer- – SpencerBANK employees recently participated in National Wear Red Day in an effort to raise money for the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women movement.

On Feb. 7, employees were encouraged to donate a minimum of $5 to the American Heart Association and in return, were allowed to wear jeans and the color red for the day. This year, SpencerBANK employees generously donated $533.

“We are pleased to support this cause and help increase the awareness of the importance of heart health,” said K. Michael Robbins, president and CEO of SpencerBANK.

Funds raised by “going red” support educational programs to increase women's awareness of their risk for heart disease and also supports critical research and studies on cardiovascular health. For more information about the Go Red for Women movement, visit www.goredforwomen.org.

Founded in 1871, SpencerBANK is an independent, mutual savings bank serving the residents, businesses, and communities of Central Massachusetts from offices in Spencer, Leicester, Rutland, Warren, and Worcester.
