The Bank of Canton recently donated $5,000 to Quincy Community Action Programs, Inc. (QCAP). This contribution helps sponsor the “Raising the Stakes for QCAP” casino night fundraiser and silent auction on Thursday, October 6 at 6:00 p.m. at Granite Links Golf Club in Quincy. Proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit QCAP programs, which help nearly 20,000 children, adults, and seniors each year to get back on their feet and lead self-sufficient lives.
“Bank of Canton is dedicated to strengthening the community – whether it is through their support of low-and moderate-income first-time homebuyers or their commitment to not-for-profits in the community,” said Beth Ann Strollo, Executive Director of Quincy Community Action Programs, Inc. “QCAP is honored to have had the Bank’s support over the years, particularly this year as we face public funding reductions. It is thanks to the generosity of our valued community members like Bank of Canton that we can continue to offer that helping hand to residents in crisis.”
“For over 45 years, Quincy Community Action Programs has been essential in helping families and individuals throughout the South Shore, whether it’s creating affordable housing options, improving the energy efficiency of low-income households, or providing parents with early education and care options,” said Stephen P. Costello, President and CEO of Bank of Canton. “Bank of Canton shares that commitment to assisting first-time homebuyers in reaching their goal of homeownership and giving back to the communities we serve. We hope this event will be a tremendous success and we’re proud to lend our support to such a worthy organization.”
