Florence Bank Presents 2023 Community Support Award to Tim Deshaies of Holyoke
FLORENCE—Florence Bank recently announced it has presented its 2023 Community Support Award to Tim Deshaies of Holyoke, director of Retail Operations at the bank.
The Community Support Award was established by the bank in 1997 as a means of formally recognizing employees who are active in the community and give their personal and professional time to local nonprofit organizations.
Each year, the award recipient can select an organization of his/her choice, and the bank will donate $500 to that organization. Deshaies has chosen The Therapeutic Equestrian Center, citing the incredible work the organization does with horse-assisted therapy for people in the community.
Deshaies came to Florence Bank in 2007. He holds a master’s in business administration from Western New England University.
He is very active in the community and currently holds these positions: treasurer of The Therapeutic Equestrian Center and The Wistariahurst Foundation; vice president of Black Horse Trust; and director of Mansir Trust.
“We are pleased to shine a spotlight on Tim because we are proud of all the important work he does in the community,” said Matt Garrity, president and CEO of Florence Bank. “Tim well deserves the Community Support Award.”
