Orleans, MA – Due to the unprecedented catastrophic flooding and related devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, Cape Cod Five announced the donation of $5,000 to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, set up by the Texas Bankers Association and the Independent Bankers Association of Texas. The fund was established to provide relief for people displaced due to storm damage. Cape Cod Five is also matching employee contributions to an aggregate additional total of $5,000 for hurricane relief and aid.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the people and communities affected by Hurricane Harvey, and as a community bank, we felt it was important to assist with relief efforts to help other communities in need,” said Dorothy A. Savarese, President and CEO of Cape Cod Five. “Our compassionate employees immediately expressed a desire to help, and we are pleased to match their donations to support relief efforts and bring needed repairs and stability to those hit by this devastation.”
Bankers from throughout the nation have been mobilized to assist with fundraising for the relief effort in conjunction with the Texas Bankers Association and the Independent Bankers Association of Texas, which are covering any fees associated with giving so that 100% of donations will go directly to the relief fund.
