Each December, Walden Savings Bank hosts its annual “22 Days of Giving” campaign to give back to the people and organizations who make a difference in the Hudson Valley.

This year, as a result of the global pandemic, the bank is also distributing mid-year donations in the amount of $11,000 to support those in need and health-care professionals working on the front lines of the coronavirus.

“We recognize the tremendous amount of need that is prevalent in our community right now, said Derrik R. Wynkoop, President and CEO of Walden Savings Bank. “Thus we have decided to immediately disperse funds with an intent to also do a second round of donations in December.”

In addition to providing direct support to families in need and essential workers, organizations that received monetary donations from the bank include: Food Bank of the Hudson Valley, Back Pack Snack Attack, Access Supports for Living, Fearless (Formerly Known as Safe Homes), Girl Scouts, Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan COVID 19 Fund, Humane Society of Walden, Regional Economic Community Action Program (RECAP) and Dutchess Outreach, among others.
