When Watertown Savings Bank Branch Manager, Bill Burgess, recently visited the offices of Springwell, he brought with him a grant that will help low-income, vulnerable seniors and adults with disabilities manage their finances and remain independent, Springwell announced.

In Springwell’s Money Management Program, volunteers provide monthly in-home assistance with routine money management tasks; provide guidance on how to stretch one’s budget; and educate about dangerous money scams.

“Watertown Savings Bank has been such a generous long-term supporter of the Money Management Program,” says program coordinator, Kathy Barrett. “This program is provided free to vulnerable, low-income elderly and disabled residents, thanks to the partnership of a number of local, corporate and foundation donors who close the gap between state funding for the program and the costs to run it. We are especially grateful to Watertown Savings Bank for their tremendous support over the years.”
