Country Bank awards $12,000 to the Carson Center

June 16, 2014

Paul Scully, President and CEO of Country Bank, and Shelly Regin, First VP, Director of Marketing at CB, paid a surprise visit to the Baystate Mary Lane Community Benefits Advisory Committee (CBAC) this past week.

Rewarding Great work

Mr. Scully personally acknowledged the great work of the CBAC and awarded the Carson Center two checks.

  • $2,000: a portion of the proceeds from Country Bank’s Community Series performances at The Center at Eagle Hill
  • $10,000: a direct gift from Country Bank to further the Carson Center’s provision of services for community members who are struggling with addiction

Maximizing impact

These funds were given to compliment the “Yes to Life, Structured Out-Patient Addiction Program” at the Carson Center, which was funded by Baystate Mary Lane Hospital's Determination of Need (DON) funds last year. DON funding was made available for community health initiatives as part of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health’s Determination of Need (DON) process related to capital expenditures for Baystate Medical Center’s new Emergency Department in Springfield.

"We are so proud to support this important and worthwhile program which will help so many of our community members," Mrs. Regin said. "Country Bank recognizes this as an opportunity to assist The Carson Center and their Yes to Life Program and in turn bring support to those who need it in our surrounding towns."
