Essex Savings Bank Donates Books to Read to Grow
Posted on December 31st, 2015

​December 30, 2015 – Essex, Connecticut.  Essex Savings Bank is pleased to share the results of its annual holiday donation contest designed to help those less fortunate in the local communities.  This year’s event had each of the six branches and the corporate office collecting books for children from infancy to eighth grade for the nonprofit organization, Read to Grow.  Read to Grow promotes building literacy from birth, distributing 130,000 books to children in Connecticut each year.  The book-themed displays at each office location ranged from Dr. Seuss to The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  While the contest adds an element of fun to the season, the driving force behind the Bank employees’ enthusiasm was helping children that may not otherwise have the access or opportunity to children’s classic stories.  All donations were at the employees’ expense and generated by their goodwill.  As a result of everyone’s efforts, Essex Savings Bank employees delivered 1,829 books to Read to Grow!  It is the hope of the Bank’s employees that these books will help make the holiday season a little more joyous for the children of Middlesex County, New Haven County and New London County.
