MVSB’s Mitten Tree Program provides nearly $4K to local nonprofits as well as 2K hats and mittens

Through the generous support of community members throughout the Lakes Region, Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB) donated $3,942 to local organizations and collected and distributed nearly 2,000 items of warm winter accessories to people in need.

Each year during the Mitten Tree program, the Bank’s 11 offices throughout the Lakes Region collect handmade and store-bought winter accessories from the community and coordinate with local organizations such as local schools and the Visiting Nurses Association to distribute the items to those who need them. In addition, MVSB makes monetary donations to the local community groups or nonprofit organizations as selected by those donating the items.

This year, the program resulted in donations to 72 different non-profit organizations throughout central New Hampshire, as well as 1,971 hats, scarves, and pairs of gloves and mittens donated to local people in need.

“We’re excited to be able to support so many local organizations that are close to the hearts of our employees and customers and so important to the communities we serve,” noted Cindy Hemeon-Plessner, vice president and marketing officer at MVSB. “It’s a potent reminder of the impact we can make when we all come together to contribute, no matter how small our individual efforts may seem.”

Meredith Village Savings Bank, founded in 1869, is an independent mutual savings bank with 11 offices serving individuals, families, businesses and municipalities in the Lakes Region and the Plymouth area. The bank and its employees are inspired by MVSB’s core values: respect, integrity, teamwork, excellence, and stewardship. These values are intrinsic to every decision made at the bank and are illustrated by the high priority placed on trust, quality service, and commitment to community support. MVSB strives to make its bank – and the communities it serves – a better place to work and live. More information can be found at
