FALL RIVER – St. Vincent’s recently accepted a grant for $5,000 from the Massachusetts Bankers Association Charitable Foundation.

Nominated by Bristol County Savings Bank for the award, St. Vincent’s received one of 33 annual community grants distributed to deserving social service agencies over eight geographic regions throughout Massachusetts.

Established in 1885 as an orphanage, St. Vincent’s is now a multi-service, behavioral health, child- and family-serving organization.

“There is always tremendous need among charitable groups,” said Richard E. Holbrook, chairman of the MBA Charitable Foundation and chairman of Eastern Bank, Boston. “We are thrilled to be able to help in our own way and give these gifts to deserving organizations across the Commonwealth.”

The MBA Charitable Foundation awards are symbolic of the many individual donations banks make on a regular basis to organizations and causes in their local communities. In addition to the more than $61 million a year given by Massachusetts banks to local charities, MBA member bank employees contribute thousands of volunteer hours across the state.

The Massachusetts Bankers Association represents approximately 175 commercial, savings and co-operative banks and savings and loan institutions located in Massachusetts and elsewhere in New England.

“Bristol County Savings Bank was more than pleased to nominate St. Vincent’s for an MBA Charitable Foundation award for the high-quality care and abundant services they provide to the children, youth and families of the Southeastern MA community,” said bank President and CEO Patrick J. Murray Jr.
