The Danielson American Legion Post 21 recently received a total of $5,000 in support from Jewett City Savings Bank and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston (FHLBB).

Jewett City Savings Bank became eligible to nominate a community-based nonprofit organization to receive a grant from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston through its participation in the FHLBB Jobs for New England program.  Jewett City Savings Bank nominated the Danielson American Legion Post 21 because of the important work they do to support all veterans in our communities, recognizing that their fund-raising efforts have been hampered by the ongoing pandemic.

The Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston approved the nomination and awarded $2,500 to the Danielson American Legion Post 21.  Jewett City Savings Bank matched the grant from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston and donated another $2,500 to the organization to support them in their mission to provide assistance to local veterans. 

Jewett City Savings Bank is a mutual savings bank operating full-service offices in Jewett City, Brooklyn, Dayville, Pawcatuck, Plainfield, Preston, and Putnam with online banking services at JCSBank.com.

Established in 1873, the Bank was voted Best Bank in Eastern Connecticut by readers of The Bulletin in 2020 and the Best Community Bank in Connecticut by readers of The Commercial Record for the last seven years.
