On Tuesday, March 10th Watertown Savings Bank will give away $75,000 to the 28 local community organizations chosen by their banking customers, in the bank’s annual Customer Choice Awards.

“The bank’s annual customer choice awards is in its 19th year, and is a program of which we are particularly proud,” said Ronald Dean, chief executive officer. “The list of winners reflects the important work being done by non-profits and volunteer organizations throughout the communities we serve. These funds will help support local schools, food pantries, and libraries just to name a few.”

Dollars to be awarded are based on the number of votes each organization received. With a maximum amount of $3,500, and this year’s top vote-getter receiving $5,000, any organization with at least one percent of the vote received funds. Voting took place throughout 2014.

During the awards ceremony on March 10th , each of the winning organizations will have the opportunity to speak about the work they do and how they will use the funds. It is a unique event that celebrates the efforts of the hard-working people who do so much to add to the quality of life in the local communities.
