Banking on backpacks

First County Bank employees Rick Zaremski, Margaret Beck, Jeanne Aulicino, Patty Sweeney, Jack Dowling, Tiffani Valentin, Suzanne Dean, Romanita Cheverez, Sheila Content, Sandy Holbrook, Denise Conzo, Robert Granata, president and COO, Caroline Cardona, Sara Tucker, Nino Antonelli, Jennifer DaSilva and Reyno A. Giallongo Jr., chairman and CEO.

This school year, as in past years, employees of First County Bank participated in the Human Services Council’s “Donate a Backpack for Family Day” program to provide students with backpacks and school supplies for the school year. The bank’s employees donated enough pens, pencils, crayons, rulers, calculators, highlighters, erasers, notebooks and binders to fill 102 backpacks. 

The backpacks and school supplies were distributed by the Human Services Council as part of its Family Day celebration. For many years, the council has been supporting The Tenant Association in Norwalk in its effort to provide each school-age resident with backpacks and school supplies. The backpacks are distributed at the association’s Family Day celebrations. Collaborating with other organizations, the Human Services Council serves more than 8,000 children, families and individuals each year. 

First County Bank, headquartered in Stamford for more than 165 years, operates 15 branch offices in Stamford, Greenwich, Darien, New Canaan, Norwalk and Westport.
