On Friday, June 28th, Cornerstone Bank employees were hard at work at the Habitat for Humanity Operation Playhouse Build-A-Thon. This event brought businesses from the MetroWest and Greater Worcester area together to build, paint, and decorate themed playhouses for Veteran and military families.
Fifteen Cornerstone Bank employees spent the day building two playhouses; one a Mickey and Minnie Mouse theme and the other a Cozy Cottage theme. At the end of the Build-A-Thon, the Mickey and Minnie Mouse themed playhouse was presented to the daughter of current US Army Master Sergeant, Luiz DeSouza and his wife, Krystal DeSouza, of Milford, MA. The cozy cottage themed playhouse went to the children of current Massachusetts Army National Guard Chaplain (Lieutenant Colonel), Ryan Sarenpa and his wife, Clarissa Sarenpa, of Lunenburg, MA. “Our military members make many sacrifices to protect the life that we enjoy here today in the United States. It’s always a privilege to be able to attend the Playhouse Build-A-Thon and give back to the military families in our community,” stated Scott L. Auen, Cornerstone Bank’s SVP/Retail Lender and MetroWest/ Greater Worcester Habitat for Humanity Board Member.
Cornerstone Bank would like to thank Mr. DeSouza and Mr. Sarenpa for their service and the service of all of our military men and woman. We would also like to thank Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/ Greater Worcester for organizing this wonderful event and Mercantile Center in Worcester for hosting the event.
