Florence Bank announces Susan Seaver as Community Support Award Winner for 2019
FLORENCE—Florence Bank has named Susan Seaver of Ludlow as the Community Support Award winner for 2019.
Seaver, a mortgage loan originator, joined Florence Bank in May 2014 and has 30 years of banking experience.
The Community Support Award was established by the bank in 1997 as a means of formally recognizing employees who are active participants in community events and donate their personal and professional time to local not-for-profit organizations.
Each year, the award recipient has the opportunity to select a not-for-profit organization of his/her choice, and the bank makes a donation to that organization. At Seaver’s recommendation, Florence Bank will make a donation to the Michael J. Dias Foundation of Ludlow, which has a mission to help those who are battling the disease of addiction.
Seaver serves her community as an active member of the Community Service Committee at the Realtor Association of Pioneer Valley. She also serves as a designated financial counselor for the Wayfinders organization, working to confront homelessness in communities throughout Western Massachusetts. Seaver volunteers as a classroom reader in support of the Link to Libraries organization in East Longmeadow and is an avid supporter of the Michael J. Dias Foundation.
John F. Heaps, Jr., president and CEO of Florence Bank said, “Sue is the ideal choice for the Community Support Award. Her positive energy, commitment to numerous local nonprofit organizations and dedication to helping those in need within our community is exemplary.”
