The Power of Giving: Thank you to Citizens Bank

Posted On September 4, 2014 By | Comments Off on The Power of Giving: Thank you to Citizens Bank

We are always so thankful when we receive donations, and it is especially touching when we hear about the effect they have had on our clients.  Sharon Snow, one of COTS’ Family Services Case Managers, had the privilege of watching families take the school supplies donated by Citizens Bank through the Gear For Grades Initiative.  She has some powerful reflections that we would love to share:

Sharon Snow, COTS Family Services Case Manager

“Every year in August the moms and dads I work with begin to worry about how they will buy school supplies for their children.  Because of Citizens Bank I am able to tell them that school supplies are one thing they can cross off their worry list.

I wish every employee of Citizens Bank could see the faces of the parents when they realize their children will go back to school with all the tools the other children have.  And I wish you could all see the kids as they pick out the color backpack they want.  They want red, no blue, no maybe black.  Just the fact that they get to choose for themselves is a treat they don’t always have.

And, of course, there is the joy I feel in being able to do this for my clients.

Thank you Citizens Bank. Your gift means so much to our families and children.”
