THOMASTON – Local small businesses and nonprofits have faced many challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These organizations have had to reduce their staff, increasing the remaining workload, while also trying to gain access to the appropriate PPE for their teams. Thomaston Savings Bank has offered a variety of benefits and programs not only to provide relief, but also to support the economic growth of struggling businesses. This support has played a central role in the survival of many small businesses through the economic turmoil of the pandemic.
In an ongoing effort to support the business community, Thomaston Savings Bank was recently approved for a New England Job Resumption Grant in the amount of $ 50,000. These funds will be awarded to ten small businesses in the amount of $ 5,000 per organization.
