Union Savings Bank Announces Its First Community Hero to Celebrate Employees Whose Volunteering in CT Goes the Extra Mile

Union Savings Bank has a long history of giving back to the community. Today, the bank announced its new Community Hero Award, designed to recognize employees whose selfless dedication to the betterment of others through volunteerism, enriches local communities. In the USB family, it’s in our DNA to be volunteering in CT.

“Community giving? It’s in our DNA,” said Union Savings Bank President and CEO, Cynthia C. Merkle. “This program is designed to celebrate employees who embody that commitment through their dedication to enriching the lives of others, especially by volunteering in CT.”

The first USB Community Hero is Carla Pierce from Bank Operations who has been a soup kitchen volunteer with the Dorothy Day Hospitality House; a food pantry volunteer with the Association of Religious Communities; and a DSABC mentor.

“Carla is a selfless provider to those in need,” explained Merkle. “She has generously given her time and resources to the homeless and poor in the area with little recognition. She is a true community hero.”
