BankFive Sponsors 18th Annual Youth Day of Caring

BankFive sponsored the United Way of Greater New Bedford’s 18th Annual Youth Day of Caring whichprovided nearly 200 student volunteers from 6 area high schools the opportunity to volunteer at local non-profit agencies, providing them with first-hand experience in giving back to their community.

Each year, area high school students take a day out of school to assist local agencies with a wide variety of tasks such as harvesting, landscaping, stocking food pantries or spring cleaning. The initiative allows students to gain insight into the valuable role volunteerism plays in our community and help non-profits keep their costs low.
