Bank of New Hampshire & Community Guaranty Savings Bank Bring Improvements to the Plymouth Regional Senior Center

Plymouth, New Hampshire – April 6, 2016 – Bank of New Hampshire and Community Guaranty Savings Bank, together, presented the Grafton County Senior Citizen’s Council with a check in the amount of $10,000 towards needed renovations at the Plymouth Regional Senior Center.

“We are proud to partner with Community Guaranty Savings Bank in continuing to support organizations such as the Plymouth Regional Senior Center,” stated Mark Primeau, President & CEO for Bank of New Hampshire. “This donation will help maintain the facility and to keep their core services in place. The range of services provided is key to serving the aging population in this region with meals, transportation, counseling and outside services.”

Grafton County Senior Citizen’s Council (GCSCC) provides services and programs to support the health, dignity and independence of older adults in the Grafton County region. The goal of the Grafton County Senior Citizen’s Council is to do what families and neighbors would, if they could, prepare meals, take people to medical appointments and to do errands, provide opportunities for getting together with friends, untangle problems with Social Security and Medicaid and Medicare, obtain financial support when necessary, secure safe and affordable housing, identify opportunities for volunteering, and offer a shoulder to lean on in times of crisis. Serving over 205,000 meals, 40,000 rides, 13,000 outreach and counseling visits, 63,000 volunteer hours and 8,500 older adults in 2015, Grafton County Senior Citizen’s Council depends on charitable support for the vital programs and services they provide on a daily basis.

“While the Grafton County Senior Citizen’s Council has been able to keep its services in place, repeated budget cuts have taken a toll in the area of upkeep and repair,” stated Roberta Berner, Executive Director of Grafton County Senior Citizens Council. “We have always taken pride in operating facilities that are functional, sturdy and appropriate to the programs and services delivered to thousands of community members each year. It is imperative that we upgrade and improve the buildings to accommodate a growing population that relies on GCSCC services. It is donations from local businesses such as Bank of New Hampshire and Community Guaranty Savings Bank that are helping us to reach our goal.”
