Business of the Month
Congratulations to our Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce Business of the Month - Chelsea Groton Bank!
Every month the Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce (GMCC) highlights a member business deserving of special recognition in our community. For the month of August, we are excited to announce Chelsea Groton Bank as the recipient of the GMCC’s Business of the Month award. The honor is nomination-based and determined by several factors, including community involvement.
Based in Groton, Chelsea Groton Bank is a mutually owned community bank with 14 locations throughout New London County. They serve businesses, individuals and families throughout the area, providing personal and business banking, as well as investment services.
Chelsea Groton Bank is also committed to supporting the local community through its education initiatives and grant-making to benefit individuals and the area as a whole. It funds scholarships and supports community events. In addition, the bank increased its charitable giving in 2013 with donations topping $361,000 to over 250 community organizations. It is an active member of the Groton Business Association and sponsors many beloved events, including the Mystic Outdoor Art Festival. Even Chelsea Groton Bank’s staff is invested in our local community, collectively logging close to 7,500 volunteer hours in 2013 alone.
Recently, the bank launched its 160 Acts of Kindness initiative to celebrate Chelsea Groton Bank’s 160th Anniversary. As part of this initiative, the bank will financially support a cause, nonprofit agency or community event, selected by each of its employees, in the amount of $160.
Such an organization that works to make a positive impact on our area and better our business community with its work and support is truly deserving of recognition. The Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce is proud to honor the entire Chelsea Groton Bank team. Congratulations!
