Social Good in 2017

Washington Trust Bank is passionate about serving the community both financially and through the significant volunteer efforts of our staff. We work with local non-profit organizations to provide for those in need and perform random acts of kindness throughout the year. Being involved in the community is truly at the core of Washington Trust’s values and we are committed to continuing our philanthropic work going forward.

Salvation Army Kick Off

Last November, Pete and Denise Stanton challenged area businesses to have a bell ringing day to raise money for the Salvation Army. Fourteen businesses in the Spokane area joined in and together, we collected more than $20,000.

Christmas Tree Giveaway

Partnering with Hopkins Tree Farm, we provided 50 trees for Boise-area families in 2017. In total, we’ve given away 600 trees during our five years of giveaways.

After seeing great success with the giveaway in the Boise area, we brought the concept to Spokane for our first-ever Spokane Christmas Tree Giveaway in 2017. We gave away 50 trees, purchased from Hutton Settlement.
