    North Brookfield Savings Bank has been a proud, longtime community supporter of Camp Putnam, making donations exceeding $30,000 over the past years. The strong community connection with the organization continues as the Bank announces that the Feed a Camper at Camp Putnam fundraiser will return again during May and June of 2019. North Brookfield Savings Bank is encouraging community members to once again join forces with the Bank to raise funds and help feed local campers this summer. Nestled in the fields and forests of New Braintree, Camp Putnam provides an authentic, nature-based camping experience for children and is affordable for all families regardless of income. With the help of the community, North Brookfield Savings Bank hopes to ease the concern for campers who may face the struggle of food insecurity during their everyday lives, and allow them to have a carefree, fun-filled camp experience. North Brookfield Savings Bank places a high value on public service, with “Community Support” being one of the five established core values of the Bank. Therefore, the Bank kicked off the fundraiser with a $1,000 donation, in hopes that the continued teamwork with their communities will allow them to raise even more. With a total fundraising goal of $1,500, North Brookfield Savings Bank is asking community members, customers and Bank employees to help raise the remaining $500 during May and June by donating at any branch location. "We continue to be exceptionally grateful for the generous support of the customers, employees and leadership of North Brookfield Savings Bank. NBSB's support through the "Feed a Camper" campaign assists in us providing three healthy, home cooked meals per day each day to each of our 750+ summer campers. For many of our campers, food insecurity is a real and constant factor in their lives,” said Todd Stewart, Executive Camp Director. “The generous support of the "Feed a Camper" campaign assists us in continuing our mission of providing all campers an enriching, safe and productive summer experience regardless of their families' financial circumstances.” Camp Putnam spends more than $40,000 on food every summer and proudly serves campers tasty and healthy home-cooked and “kid-friendly” meals such as homemade mac and cheese, tacos, shepherd’s pie, fresh fruits and veggies, pancakes, french toast and more. Stewart continued, “We are entering our 72nd summer of maintaining our mission to serve ALL interested children regardless of ability to pay. Healthy, filling, family-style meals are central to our programming and to our mission. There is nothing quite like the atmosphere of our dining hall full of happy campers sharing highlights of their day over a delicious and nutritious meal." Want to know how you can donate?

We are hopeful that with our contribution and the generosity of our community members we will once again reach and exceed our goal to help feed campers well-rounded, nutritious meals.” North Brookfield Savings Bank is also a proud $500 Gold Sponsor of the Camp Putnam Ramble Q event taking place on May 19, 2019.
