There IS Such a Thing as a Free Lunch

Posted December 16, 2021

As another of our 170 Acts of Kindness, we provided lunch to all staff and volunteers participating in Project Santa at the People’s Place in Kingston. The delicious lunch came from Frank Guido’s Little Italy. Every December, the People’s Place gifts Ulster County children with a package containing toys, board games, books, stocking stuffers, and winter weather clothing. This effort is funded through their Celebrate Santa event held during the summer, financial donations from the community, and donations of new toys, board games, and winter clothing. Pictured are bank employees Dulce Ward and Tammy Gillon from the HR Department.

Our Newburgh branch performed a Culinary Act of Kindness for 50 lucky customers at El Salvadoreno Restaurant. They received free pupusas courtesy of Ulster Savings Bank. Owner Ashley Rosales Marin was very excited to let her customers know that their pupusas, which are small, round corncakes filled with cheese, meat, or beans, were already paid for by US.
