In honor of our 170th anniversary this year, we are celebrating with 170 acts of kindness in our communities.



Spreading Kindness at the Farmers Market

On Saturday, July 17, we were spreading our Acts of Kindness at the Kingston Farmers Market. Wall Street Branch Manager Briana Purdy and staff member Tasha Dechant worked with Wright’s Farm to pay for random customers’ purchases. Wright’s Farm is a five generation family-run farm located in Gardiner.


Supporting Future Gymnastic Champions

Our Newburgh branch spread their Acts of Kindness on July 12 by paying for ten 45-minute lessons to future Olympic Champions at All Around Gymnastics.

All Around Gymnastics offer artistic gymnastics and tumbling programs for toddlers, preschoolers, and older school aged children as well as competitive programs for girls who excel and want more of a challenge.


Spreading More Acts of Culinary Kindness

Advanced Dermatology in Lake Katrine was the big lunch winner of WBPM’s Workplace of the Week. We joined the radio station in spreading our Culinary Act of Kindness to Dr. Kircher and the staff at this premier provider of dermatologic skin care. Connie Harkin, VP of Marketing delivered their lunch from Home Plate Deli on July 8. Each week we join WBPM as a sponsor to this program that helps support our local businesses.

Opening Season for Mini Golf

The weather is getting nicer and we helped families enjoy the outdoors. Kids of all ages received a free ticket on US for a game of miniature golf at the season opening of Putting Plus in Saugerties. 


Inspiration from Peace the Service Dog

Ulster Savings Bank is a proud supporter of The Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse and their continued advocacy for the vulnerable children of our community. A few years ago we helped sponsor a grant for the Center to purchase a service dog to comfort the young clients during stressful interviews with CPS. Peace is the facility’s 2 year old golden retriever and the children’s guardian angel. This year the South Road Poughkeepsie branch manager, Dennis Conn coordinated with Executive Director, Kimbery Haight to purchase stuffed animals for the children that would remind them of Peace and to serve as constant companions. Just like Peace, we are committed to the service and comfort of the children at The Center.


Mother's Day Flowers

On Saturday, May 8, we helped Red Hook VFW Post 7765 and Frank Vosburg of Kesicke Farm Cattle Inc. celebrate Mother's Day by giving away beautiful hanging flower baskets to several VFW post members, Auxiliary members and their families at Kesicke Farm Market in Red Hook.


Celebrating Cinco de Mayo

On Wednesday, May 5, we gave out FREE Guacamole Dip Appetizers to the first 50 customers who came to dine at Casa Vallarta after 4pm. Lake Katrine Branch Manager Karisa Finch and Casa Vallarta owner Sam Alegria are pictured at the establishment.
