SHREWSBURY – Clinton Savings Bank and WXLO 104.5 recently teamed up and held a lemonade stand at Clinton Savings Bank’s Shrewsbury branch at 200 Hartford Turnpike to provide a bright start to the school year for Coolidge Elementary School’s teachers and students.
“The members of our community have huge hearts, especially when it comes to helping our local schools,” said president and CEO of Clinton Savings Bank Robert J. Paulhus Jr. “We’re thrilled to see the contributions used to help this important cause and to be a part of benefiting students in our service area.”
Bank staff and morning show hosts Frank Foley and Jen Carter were in the parking lot of the bank with lemonade that was donated by Florida’s Natural Lemonade from Market Basket.
The group was accepting monetary donations and school supplies to support the Coolidge students. They raised over $2,000 in school supplies.
WXLO 104.5 General Manager Bob Goodell said they were thrilled to see many people come out during the event, including Worcester County Sheriff Lew Evangelidis, who dropped off backpacks and supplies from his office.
“One of the most important things we can do is help children be successful in school,” said Goodell. “We are excited to partner with Clinton Savings again next year so that we can make this an annual event.
