The following information was provided by Watertown Savings Bank:

In a series of videos that aired recently, Watertown Savings Bank (WSB)
honored the 32 non-profit winners of their Annual Customer Choice Awards.

“In celebration of the Bank’s 150th Anniversary in 2020, we have awarded $150,000 in donations to 32 local non-profits, as voted on by WSB customers,” said Bank President & CEO Brett Dean. “This year’s winners represent five different towns, and dozens of volunteers who help hundreds of people in their communities.”

Organizations that received one percent of the total number of votes cast, received a donation. Voting took place from October-December 2019. The Awards Night planned in April was canceled in light of the current social distancing rules.

“We wanted to still celebrate and honor the non-profits and all of the great work that they do, so we had to get creative,” Dean said.

The Bank worked with Dan McCarthy/DM Productions to create the virtual awards presentation, which is now available to view on WSB’s website: watertownsavings.com or their Facebook page.
