SCHIP was recently awarded $500 from the People's United Bank


Each year as part of the People’s United Volunteer Recognition Program, the bank honors bank employees who exemplify what it means to give back and volunteer their time within their communities.  This year, one of those recognized by the bank was Louis Maguire, Shelburne Branch Manager.  He in turned selected SCHIP to be the recipient of the donation from Peoples in honor of its ongoing community efforts. Schip appreciates this generous gift that will go toward our upcoming grant season. 





We recently had a great morning meeting, greeting and giving out money to eleven of our  fourteen recipients.
