Mechanics Savings Bank is a long time supporter of its local fire departments and the charities they support. On December 8, a team of Mechanics Savings Bank employees donned red and green tutus and candy cane-striped socks to participate in the Auburn Fire Department’s “Local 797 Truckload of Christmas 5K.”
“This was a great way to meet my personal fitness goals, give back to the community, and have a lot of fun with my co-workers,” said Terri Cook, Performance Improvement Project Manager at Mechanics Savings Bank. “This is what Christmas is all about… spreading cheer and embracing the opportunity to make the season a little brighter for others.”
Race participants donated unwrapped toys to benefit less fortunate children in Lewiston and Auburn. Local firefighters will wrap the toys and deliver them, with help from Santa, in a fire truck from Engine 2 Station later this month.
Founded in 1875 as a mutual savings bank in Auburn, Mechanics Savings Bank today has branches in Auburn, Lewiston, Brunswick and Windham. Mechanics Savings Bank is an Equal Housing Lender and Member FDIC.
