Each year, Florence Bank gives away $100,000 to community non-profits through its Community Choice grants program. Florence Bank customers vote for the non-profit of their choice & all non-profits getting at least 50 votes receive a grant. The non-profits receiving the most votes can get up to $5,000.
In past years, the ARPS PGO has received close to 100 votes & over $1,400 per year. Yay! The grant money went towards classroom support, special projects, field trips & more.
This year, the PGOs of the ARPS PGO (Crocker Farm, Wildwood, Amherst Middle School, & Amherst High School) are campaigning jointly again to maximize our votes & see if we can get even more. Every vote helps.
** Each Florence Bank account holder is eligible to vote once for the community organization of their choice. **
** The ARPS PGO is urging people to vote for the “Amherst Regional Public Schools PGO”, the name of our joint non-profit. **
There are 2 easy ways to vote:
(1) Online – Visit https://www.florencebank.com/vote to cast a vote online for the “Amherst Regional Public Schools PGO”.
(2) Paper Ballot (attached). Ballots are also available at any Florence Bank location. Ballots should be submitted at the bank or turned in to the PGO.
