The annual fundraising drive to support Money Management assistance through Somerville-Cambridge Elder Services (SCES) was a big success, and SCES is thanking East Cambridge Savings Bank for supporting that effort.
Through their charitable foundation, East Cambridge Savings Bank pledged to match the first $5,000 of donations for the fundraising drive, which raised more than $50,000.
“Our Money Management program relies on local support to provide essential assistance in our community,” said SCES CEO Marta Corvelo. “We are so grateful for East Cambridge Savings Bank stepping up to help us provide this lifeline for our older neighbors.”
“Supporting our elder neighbors is a critical way that the Bank and our charitable foundation can enhance the quality of life for all in the communities we serve,” said Gilda Nogueira, the Bank’s chief executive officer. “The Somerville-Cambridge Elder Services Money Management Program is an incredible service that helps senior citizens maintain independence and safeguard their finances. The work that the staff and volunteers do to operate and grow this program is truly remarkable and we admire their commitment to supporting seniors and their families.”
“Somerville-Cambridge Elder Services is a trusted resource for advice, support, and guidance for older adults and their families,” noted Tim Bombard, the Bank’s president and chief lending officer. “The Money Management Program provides peace of mind to senior citizens who use the program and builds social bonds between the volunteers and the seniors they help. It really is a key way to help seniors live dignified and full lives.”
Money Management supports the independence of local older adults who need assistance with bill paying, bank errands, and other essential tasks. The program serves more than 60 older adults in Cambridge and Somerville who need assistance due to failing eyesight, memory loss, or disability.
East Cambridge Saving Bank has generously supported SCES programs since 1995. This was the second consecutive year that East Cambridge Savings Bank supported the Money Management drive through matching donations.
