Rockland Trust Bank Donates $25,000

Donated Funds Support Saint Columbkille Partnership School Extended Day Program

On Thursday, January 25, Rockland Trust-Peoples Federal Foundation donated $25,000 to support the Saint Columbkille Partnership School extended day program. For the fourth consecutive year, the Foundation has supported the program, which includes both the after-school program and co-curricular clubs. Rockland Trust Bank is also a proud sponsor of the BC Race to Educate, an annual race fundraiser that supports Saint Columbkille.

“We are very grateful for the support from Rockland Trust,” says Head of School Dr. William Gartside. “They are true partners to the school and we look forward to continuing our strong relationship.”

“The Rockland Trust-Peoples Federal Foundation is proud to support Saint Columbkille,” said Roberta Sousa, First Vice President and District Manager for Rockland Trust. “We are thrilled to be able to help the school serve local families and children with a top quality education and programs.”

Rockland Trust serves as the school’s official bank and local employees teach financial literacy classes to students. Further, Saint Columbkille students participate in the Rockland Trust summer reading program, Reading Makes Cent$.
