Things can get pretty crazy after Thanksgiving with Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. Cutting through the shopping madness is an amazing initiative gaining headway called Giving Tuesday. This year, the Wentworth-Douglass Foundation and Optima Bank & Trust have partnered again to celebrate Giving Tuesday. When you make a donation to the foundation, Optima Bank will match it- and double your dollar!

Mark Ericson sat down with Dan Morrison, Chairman, President & Chief Executive Officer of Optima Bank & Trust and Mary Davidson Williams, Annual Fund Manager for the Wentworth-Douglass Foundation to discuss the Giving Tuesday program and goals:

 

So why Wentworth-Douglass? Donations to Wentworth-Douglass Hospital strengthen, enhance and grow services to patients beyond what is typically covered by insurance.  For example, the Care Van service that transports patients to and from medical appointments, the Family Wellness Series that provides experts on the topics most concerning to parents in our community and Supportive and Wellness services for patients in the Seacoast Cancer Center.

Last year Wentworth-Douglass Hospital received over $23,000 in donations on Giving Tuesday from our generous community which included a $5,000 match from Optima Bank & Trust. Let's help them grow this figure by donating on Tuesday, November 28th!
