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.
