Bank of Bennington Donates $10,000 to Second Chance
The Bank of Bennington has donated $10,000 to Second Chance Animal Center in Arlington, joining nine other prominent area businesses to become one of ‘Ten for Ten’ – local companies each donating $10,000 to the animal shelter’s capital campaign. “We are so pleased to support this local community resource that helps our four-footed friends with such amazing service. This is an outstanding nonprofit that assists both pets and pet owners in our community and as such, is deserving of our support,” said Jim Brown, president of The Bank of Bennington. The new 10,700-square foot Second Chance facility will allow the organization to provide more and better services, including expanded spay-neuter resources, more animal education groups for children and adults, and better living conditions overall for the dogs and cats at the shelter. Second Chance serves a large area, encompassing Bennington County and parts of Massachusetts and adjacent New York state as well.
