City of Gloucester Community Impact Unit:
Cape Ann Savings Bank is proud to support the City of Gloucester's Community Impact Unit. Below, Bob Gillis, Marianne Smith and Mike Luster pose with Officer Sutera and Ace the Resource Dog. Ace visits children in need in the community. The Bank contributed $1,000.00 toward the purchase of Ace story book and stuffed animal kits that are handed out to the children who Ace visits.
The Community Impact Unit had an amazing opportunity presented to them in 2021. CATA generously donated one of their buses to the Unit and Cape Ann Savings Bank and Bank Gloucester came together, each contributing $8,600.00 to have the bus branded and outfitted with a generator and essential supplies. The bus is stocked with supplies to help the homeless including blankets and tents, as well as toys and ice cream for when the Community Impact Unit visits local children in their neighborhoods. In addition the Community Impact Unit can distribute Narcan to those in need.
