The bank held two fundraisers in which employees donated at least $5 to wear jeans to work. The bank also placed donation boxes in all of its bank branches where customers can
Canandaigua National Bank will then take the customer's donations and match the amount, up to $5,000. All of the donations will go to the Webster Community Chest to help those whose homes burned down while a shooter ambushed first responders.
"That's just the heart of what Canandaigua National is, we're all about community. Our success is because of the communities that we serve and we really have a loyalty to those communities and believe strongly in being involved in the communities in anyway that we possibly can," said Kathy Amberge, senior vice president, Canandaigua National Bank.
"A lot of the contacts that we have, right now they're doing fine. We're waiting for them to come to us and say 'hey, this is what we need or we're short here and we need a grocery run.' As of right now, that hasn't happened, so when we collect all the money at the end, we're looking to take the full dollar amount and split it amongst the seven families evenly," said Andy Lamanna, vice president of Webster Community Chest.
The donation boxes will stay out through Saturday before they are collected.
