Torrington Savings Bank Announces donation to Torrington Police Activities League
Torrington Savings Bank recently announced a $2,500 donation to the Torrington Police Activities League. This donation will benefit various PAL initiatives, including the PAL Scholars After-School Program. The PAL Scholars After-School Program is currently in four Torrington schools and serves over 150 children. PAL Scholars helps mentor youth to stay in school and to make good choices, under the guidance of law enforcement and community leaders. Businesses showcase their companies and careers to the kids in the program to help encourage them to stay involved in our community.
TSB will also be a sponsor of the 8th Annual PAL Fall Classic Golf Tournament dinner. The annual dinner at the conclusion of the tournament highlights the achievements of PAL throughout the year. The dinner also honors a local volunteer with the “Spirit of the Community Award”. Each year, the tournament raises approximately $26,000 which is applied towards scholarships. That support directly impacts 1,000 area children by offering financial assistance and allowing them to participate in activities in which they otherwise may have been unable. “We are pleased to have the support of Torrington Savings Bank for our awards dinner this year. This is a great way to show some of PAL’s biggest supporters the good work our volunteers and officers do for our kids,” says Chief Michael Maniago of the Torrington Police. “As a leader in our community the bank is inspiring others through their support.”
The Torrington Police Activities League is a partnership between the City of Torrington and the Torrington Police Department. A 501(c)3 non-profit, PAL is a member of National PAL, the United Way and a National Youth Sports Alliance Chapter. Kids are encouraged to stay in school and are taught to deter violence through educational, social, and recreational programs under the guidance of law enforcement, community, and business leaders. PAL has been active in Torrington for 28 years and impacts over 1000 area children annually. For more information please visit our website at www.torringtonpal.org or call 860-489-2057.
