LACONIA — Bank of New Hampshire and its employees have raised in excess of $ 120,000 to donate to local United Ways.
"Year after year, the employees of Bank of New Hampshire remain dedicated to the bank's mission of supporting New Hampshire communities," said Mark Primeau, the bank's president and CEO. "Our annual United Way contribution is an outstanding example of that dedication."
In addition to employee contributions and the bank's match, Bank of New Hampshire's United Way Committee, consisting of Jared Price, Candice Hada, Jenn Watson, Nikki Holgate and Maya Colt, coordinated fundraisers such as jeans days and bake sales to raise an additional $1,884.
