Spencer, MA— SpencerBANK is pleased to announce its recent donation of $2,500 to the YWCA of Central Massachusetts to benefit the Girls CHOICE Program.
The Girls CHOICE program (an acronym that stands for Choosing Hope, Opportunity, and Independence through Career and Education) provides leadership training and service learning through an intensive, six-year program of mentoring and wrap-around support for at-risk girls. This donation will help support weekly programming held for 34 weeks throughout the academic year for middle and high school girls.
“We are proud to support such an influential program as Girls CHOICE,” said President and CEO of SpencerBANK K. Michael Robbins. “The positive impact this program brings is invaluable.”
The Girls CHOICE program provides girls with access to a network of services including: mentoring, violence reduction and women’s empowerment programming, academic support, leadership development, and civic engagement.
