Spencer, MA—SpencerBANK and Southbridge Savings Bank employees recently teamed up to support the Angel Fund for ALS Research. On September 2, they held a Jeans for a Cause fundraiser event where participating employees wore the color blue and jeans to raise awareness for ALS.

Employees were encouraged to donate a minimum of $5 to the Angel Fund, and in return, were allowed to wear jeans for the day. This year, employees collectively raised over $1,400 for the Angel Fund.

SpencerBANK and Southbridge Savings Bank employees were happy to dress in blue and wear jeans for a day to support research for a cure of the debilitating disease that has affected many Americans, including some within their own community. All of the employees enjoyed teaming up together to raise awareness and support the local non-profit organization.

“We are pleased to have joined forces for such an important cause,” said K. Michael Robbins, President and CEO of SpencerBANK. “I am proud of the employees for coming together to show their solidarity in the fight against ALS, and helping to support the research for a cure.”

The Angel Fund, an independent non-profit organization dedicated to supporting ALS research, is local to Worcester, Massachusetts and has been recognized internationally for ground-breaking work in investigating the causes of ALS. Research is conducted at the Cecil B. Day Laboratory for Neuromuscular Research at UMass Medical Center in Worcester, under the direction of world renowned ALS researcher Dr. Robert H. Brown, Jr. For more information on the Angel Fund, please visit: https://theangelfund.org/.
