Hudson – Avidia Bank employees gave back to the local community in a big way during 2018.  During a recent survey of Avidia employees, the bank found that over 1,200 hours were spent volunteering in the community.

Employees volunteer for organizations such as Community Harvest Project, Special Olympics of Massachusetts, United Way of Tri County, Buddy Dog Humane Society, the Marlborough Senior Center and local Rotary Clubs, to name a few.

In addition to volunteering, many Avidia employees also sit on the committees or serve on Boards of Directors, giving up their time to help nonprofits and local organizations continue to grow.

“We believe volunteering is a big part of who we are as a community bank,” said Tom Doane, SVP of Human Resources at Avidia. “We encourage employees to get involved in our community through organizations they are passionate about.”

The bank, which has been serving MetroWest and Central Massachusetts for 150 years, was founded upon giving back to its local area.  Employees of Avidia are given one full paid day a year to volunteer with a nonprofit of their choice.
