Bankers often make large sums of money over a business lunch. The men and women of Enterprise Bank recently took that tradition to a whole new level, only they did so on behalf of others.
At an employee gathering last Friday, June 3rd, the generous folks who work for Enterprise Bank raised $1,541.00 for Megan’s House. The “Salad Luncheon” is a monthly bank tradition where the workers of the Lowell-based institution’s many branches prepare food and sell raffle tickets for gift baskets to help support local causes.
This month, they selected the Megan House Foundation and invited Program Director Mary Beth Murphy to the luncheon at their newest facility on the corner of Palmer and Middle streets in Downtown Lowell. Murphy discussed the creation of Megan’s House, its mission and the programs offered there.
The Enterprise employees were certainly a welcoming and understanding audience, as their generous contributions indicate. According to Cheryl Copley, an Electronic Servicing Representative for the bank, the amount raised was the most ever from one of these luncheons. The organizing committee for the event was comprised of Elizabeth Santiago, Mike Sugerman, Laurie Bozek and Vina Chanthaseng.
All of us at the Megan House Foundation, the Board members and staff are grateful to Enterprise Bank and its employees for inviting us into their newest home and showering up with their kindness. The money raised on our behalf will go a long way toward helping us fight opioid addiction.
