As we approach this season of gratitude, I find myself reflecting on the incredible journey we have shared together this year at Walden Savings Bank. It is truly remarkable how time flies, and here we are, gearing up for another holiday season.
This Thanksgiving, I am filled with immense pride and gratitude and would also like to share some exciting news with you. For the tenth consecutive year, Walden Savings Bank has been selected as the “Best Bank” in the Times Herald Record Readers’ Choice Awards. I want to extend our deepest appreciation for your continued trust and support which has played an integral role in the success of Walden Savings Bank. This achievement is a testament to our unwavering commitment to excellence and your enduring support. Walden Investment Services, our financial planning division, is also humbled to have been recognized as “Best Financial Planning” organization.
In the spirit of giving back, we are delighted to continue our annual tradition, the “22 Days of Giving” program. This initiative, now in its eighth year, embodies the true essence of community spirit. Through the generous contributions of our employees, matched by the bank, we have been able to donate over $125,000 to various charitable causes and families in need within our community. Stay tuned next month as we share heartwarming stories of the impact of our charitable giving on our social media channels.
Additionally, I am happy to announce Walden Savings Bank will be partnering with K104 Radio for their Annual Christmas Wish initiative once again. As we celebrate this holiday season, if you know someone who is a going through a difficult time and is in need, you can make their holiday a little brighter by submitting their Christmas Wish for an opportunity for one of twelve $500 gift cards.
As we gather our loved ones this Thanksgiving, let us cherish the moments of togetherness and express our gratitude for the blessings we have received. At Walden Savings Bank, we are immensely thankful for your trust, loyalty and support. We are deeply committed to earning your confidence each day, and we look forward to continuing this incredible journey together. From everyone at Walden Savings Bank, we wish you a very joyous and Happy Thanksgiving.
