Needham Bank makes second donation to Newman Playground project

Bank contributes a total of $14,000 to playground renovation

NEEDHAM, MA (MMD Newswire) January 3, 2013 -- Needham Bank, with branches throughout the greater Boston area is proud to announce its continued support of Needham's Newman Elementary School Playground with the donation of $7,000.

The recent contribution is in addition to a sum of $7,000 made earlier in the year toward replacement of the former Newman Elementary School playground, which was found to be in non-compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This discovery, coupled with the general disrepair of the playground, led to the decision by school officials to demolish the former site and build a new playground.

The new playground, now open, is fully integrated and adaptive to the needs of all children, including those with disabilities.

Project fundraising was spearheaded by A Cause for Play, a group of parents and school faculty, including Mary Kelley, who lauded Needham Bank for "such generosity and responsiveness."

"We can't say enough about Needham Bank and its generous support not only of our project, but of so many organizations throughout Needham and beyond," said Ms. Kelley. "We are all lucky to have such a kind, supportive and thoughtful organization in our communities."

"It gives us enormous pleasure to support such a praiseworthy project," said Jack W. McGeorge, CEO of Needham Bank.
