Region – SpencerBANK and Southbridge Savings Bank employees have teamed up once again, this time to support the American Cancer Society and those affected by breast cancer. On Oct. 7, they held a Denim Day fundraiser event where participating employees wore the color pink and jeans to raise awareness for breast cancer.
Employees were encouraged to make a donation of any amount to the American Cancer Society, and in return, were allowed to wear jeans for the day. This year, employees collectively raised $952 for the American Cancer Society to help end breast cancer.
“It’s so rewarding to see the employees come together again in support of another important cause,” said K. Michael Robbins, president and CEO of SpencerBANK. “We are proud to be a part of the movement to end breast cancer, and to help support those affected by this disease.”
The American Cancer Society, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting cancer research, has hosted the annual American Cancer Society Denim Day since 1996. To date, Denim Day participants have raised over $95 million for breast cancer research and prevention.
