Hyannis, MA (December 19, 2019) - The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod continued its tradition of community giving with several holiday initiatives that were generously supported by its employees and customers this season. On Tuesday evening, Coop President and CEO Lisa Oliver had the pleasure of delivering hundreds of toys, gift cards and supplies to The Boys & Girls Club of Cape Cod in Mashpee. The items were collected in branches as part of the bank’s “9th Annual Stuff a Stocking” Program and will be distributed to families in need or used to support the club’s programming. A team from the Bank also made a toy delivery to Cape Cod’s “Stuff a Bus” program in support of Toys for Tots, delivering several sacks brimming with toys. The annual weekend event was generously embraced by Cape Codders, who collectively raised 26,471 toys this year. Internally, employees also initiated spirited ways to give. Several employees teamed up to adopt local seniors through Home Instead Senior Care’s “Be A Santa to a Senior” program, purchasing much needed gifts for seniors who might not otherwise receive any presents. Employees also adopted two local families in need through Cape Cod Broadcasting’s “Christmas Wishes” initiative, purchasing gifts and items to provide a brighter holiday for families needing an extra hand. For almost 10 years, employees have also participated in the Salvation Army’s “Dress a Live Doll” program, purchasing new winter clothing for local children in need. The Corps was able to provide clothing and toys to more than 1,480 children this season through “Dress a Live Doll” and their “Toy Shop” initiative. “It’s heartening to see our employees and customers embrace the spirit of giving with such enthusiasm and generosity,” said Lisa Oliver, President and CEO of The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod. “While we strive to give back to the community year-round, the holiday season is a time when many of our friends and neighbors need a little extra help. These wonderful programs will make the holiday season a little lighter and brighter for a broad spectrum of Cape Codders.” About The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod is an independent, local, mutual community bank with over $900 million in assets and over 170 employees.
