Brookline Bank Supports Springwell's Money Management Program for Seniors

Brookline Bank Supports Springwell's Money Management Program for Seniors

With help from a Brookline Bank grant award, more than 60 low-income elders and adults with disabilities will benefit this year from 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.  Brookline Bank has been a corporate sponsor of Springwell’s Money Management Program since 2001.  

“Grants from community-minded businesses are a lifeline for our Money Management Program,” says program coordinator, Kathy Barrett.  “This program is provided free to vulnerable, low-income elderly and disabled residents, thanks to the generosity of our corporate donors.  We are especially grateful to Brookline Bank for their tremendous support.”  To learn more about the Money Management Program, call 617-926-4100 x201 or email kbarrett@springwell.com.
