Cornerstone Bank contributed $28,000 toward local fundraising events

Cornerstone Bank supported three nonprofits by sponsoring their local fundraising events. This included $8,000 to Abby’s House for its Spring-Tacular Event on May 16; $5,000 to In the Hour of Need Family Shelter for its 2024 Evening of Hope held on May 10; $5,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters for its Big Celebration, which was held on April 2, and $10,000 for its upcoming Golf Fore Kids event on June 24.

“We’re proud to support the vital work of these three organizations, which serve as integral links in the safety net for our local residents,” said Cornerstone Bank CEO Todd Tallman. “They all provide valuable resources and services for neighbors in need.”

Abby’s House in Worcester provides women and their children with affordable housing and the support they need to get on their feet. All proceeds raised through the 11th Annual Spring-Tacular Celebration are being used to address the individual needs of women and children through advocacy and support services.

In the Hour of Need (IHN) Family Shelter (formerly The Interfaith Hospitality Network of Greater Worcester) works in partnership with the faith community, groups and individual volunteers to provide shelter and assistance to families with children who are experiencing homelessness. The program’s primary goals are to assist families in increasing their income and help them secure permanent housing, while providing the critical support services necessary for them to succeed. The 2024 Evening of Hope held last month at the BrickBox Theater raised funds to benefit IHN and its services.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Mass & MetroWest held its annual Big Celebration on Tuesday, April 2, to raise funds for kids facing adversity in the local community. On Monday, June 24, the organization is holding its annual Golf Fore Kids tournament at Marlborough Country Club. The day includes 18 holes of golf, an exciting raffle and a reception, with monies raised benefiting the mentoring programs at Big Brother Big Sisters.
