Because the bank is our local community bank – their folks work here and live here – they can understand that a new playground at Greene’s Field would be a wonderful asset for our community. In addition to their generous donation, Needham Bank has offered us a challenge to help us meet our goal: For every Greene’s Field Playground supporter who doesn’t currently have a checking account at Needham Bank and who chooses to open one, the Bank will donate $100 to the Greene’s Field Playground. Just mention this offer when you open your account.
Eric Morse, VP at Needham Bank, explained, “We know that people don’t change banks every day, but for supporters of the Greene’s Field Playground who are considering doing so in 2013, we hope you’ll consider Needham Bank. With branches in Needham, Wellesley, Dedham, Westwood and Medfield it’s a great way to show your support of the Greene’s Field Playground. If you’d rather not come into one of our branches, we’ll come to your office or home. It’s so easy to participate in this program. Please contact Jeff Stewart, Needham Branch Manager, to schedule an appointment.”
The Greene’s Field Playground Fundraising Committee would like to say a heartfelt “thank you” to the Kyle W. Shapiro Foundation and its trustees, Ruth Bonsignore and Andy Shapiro. The foundation’s generous donation of $50,000 toward the construction of a new playground at Greene’s Field will ensure that generations of children have a place in the center of Needham to climb, play, slide, and swing.
Because of donations like the one from the Kyle W. Shapiro Foundation, the new Greene’s Field playground is sure to become a destination for families, a meeting place for neighbors and friends, and a place where childhood memories are made. When the new Greene’s Field playground opens this summer, it will have two structures – a smaller one for younger children and a more challenging one for older children. And since the town is planning to renovate Greene’s Field at the same time, the playground will be part of a revitalized park.
The kindness and generosity of our community is part of what makes Needham such an outstanding place to live and to raise a family. Thank you to the Kyle W. Shapiro Foundation for making Greene’s Field a wonderful place to play for decades to come.
