Ballston Spa National Bank to Donate 750 Weekend Backpacks

On May 10, Ballston Spa National Bank (BSNB) employees participated in an annual bank-wide Community Service Day. BSNB locations across the Capital Region closed at 12:00 p.m., allowing employees to volunteer their time. This year’s event supported 5 local school districts by providing an anticipated 750 weekend backpacks containing nutritious, child-friendly food supplies.

More than 130 employees volunteered time packing the discreet backpacks with a variety of foods designed to fill plates over a weekend, which can be a challenging time for families that rely on school lunch programs during the school week.

The school districts that will benefit from these activities include Ballston Spa CSD, Galway CSD, Burnt Hills – Ballston Lake CSD, Voorheesville CSD and Stillwater CSD.

“BSNB’s annual Community Service Day reflects our ongoing commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of our neighbors,” said Christopher R. Dowd, president and CEO. “Our employees are the ‘difference makers’ that set BSNB apart, forging a human connection that emphasizes lasting relationships and a personal investment in the communities we serve.”
