Spencer Savings Bank recently made a $10,000 donation to Comprehensive Behavioral Healthcare (CBHCare), in support of improving mental health in the community. The bank has been working with and supporting the organization for over three years. Donations help the organization sustain essential counseling and support services in the community.
“Mental healthcare is just as important as physical healthcare, yet the quality of mental healthcare often lags behind. CBHCare works tirelessly to bridge the gap in this area, and we’re proud to support them,” said Jose B. Guerrero, Spencer’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Mental health matters, and these leaders in the field are improving the lives of our community members. We’re proud to partner with them on the very important work they do.”
