Senior Vice President/Senior Commercial Lending Officer Mel McKee (R) presents Valley Tech Superintendent-Director Dr. Michael F. Fitzpatrick (L) with a donation check to fund the school’s student transportation van.

Charles River Bank recently donated $1,000 to support the Blackstone Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School student van. This van is used to transport students to job sites within the 13-town district. Students use their technical skills to work in various public schools, municipal buildings and non-profit locations. Students in the Painting and Design Technologies program worked on creating the Charles River Bank logo that is adhered to the van in 3 locations.
“We are happy to help BVT in any way we can. Having this van available to the students is a great way for the school to get involved with the community as well as a wonderful way for students to practice their technical skills.  Greater exposure to different jobs and experiences helps these talented BVT students develop their professional capabilities,” said Charles River Bank President and CEO Jack Hamilton.
Charles River Bank—with assets of $235 million—was founded in 1915, and continues to offer a wide range of individual and business banking services. The Bank's Main Office is located at 70 Main Street in Medway, and new state-of-the-art branches are located on the Bellingham/Franklin town line on Route 140 and in Mendon at 1 Hastings Street, at the intersection of Rte. 16 and North Avenue. Charles River Bank also operates a branch in Medway High School that serves as an educational facility and full-service branch. In 2016, Charles River Bank contributed more than $40,000 to community non-profit organizations.Charles River Bank Donates to Blackstone Valley Tech
