For more than 20 years, Greenfield Savings Bank has been a dedicated supporter of LifePath. LifePath is fortunate to have a local bank heading our annual Meals on Wheels Walkathon list of supporters.
“Greenfield Savings Bank is committed to improving the quality of life in the communities we serve,” said John Howland, president and CEO of Greenfield Savings Bank. “Our partnership with LifePath is at the very core of that mission. That’s why in addition to our financial support, so many of our employees volunteer their time to support LifePath.”
Denise Coyne, executive vice president and chief operating officer, has served on LifePath’s board for more than ten years, with many of those years serving as treasurer. She has also been a perennial volunteer for the Walkathon. “I know from personal experience, with my grandmother, how much it means for the elderly and people with disabilities to live independently. LifePath provides a range of services to help individuals, their families, and their caregivers to help make this possible.”
Linda Ackerman, assistant vice president and Turners Falls office sales manager has been dedicated to LifePath since 2015. She’s a devoted Walkathon walker, but also volunteers for LifePath’s Long-Term Care Ombudsman and Money Management programs. Linda shares, “I love my Bank for allowing me the opportunity to make a difference in the community. Volunteering helped fill the gap that existed after losing my parents. While missing my Mom and Dad will never go away, helping someone else’s Mom or Dad somewhat fills the void and makes me feel good!”
Over the years, many others inspired by Greenfield Savings Bank’s community spirit have lent LifePath their time, talent, and treasure. As a result, Greenfield Savings Bank’s impact at LifePath and on those we serve runs deep. It is our honor to accept all the ways Greenfield Savings Bank supports LifePath programs, continuing to make options for independence a reality for our community.
Thank you, Greenfield Savings Bank, and those you inspire to support elders, people with disabilities, and their caregivers in our community.
