Why “Doc” Supports Megan’s House:
“Eastern Bank is committed to helping our community learn about financial capability. Last year, along with MASSHIRE, I had the great opportunity to present to the head of the FDIC regarding financial capability and the fantastic programs that Lowell is engaging. Among the things we provide: helping rebuild credit, understand finances, teaching how to budget money, interviewing skills and reestablishing back into the community by providing the necessary financial tools. Megan’s House does such an amazing job helping those in recovery and we are honored to help.”
