March 7 – Eastern Bank, America’s oldest and largest mutual bank, has announced the launch of Join Us For Good, a program to inspire customers and communities, celebrate those who are making a difference, and rally others to join together to “create a movement” to do good things and help people prosper.
Through a powerful and uplifting new ad campaign, website, billboards, social media initiatives and continued charitable giving, Eastern will shine a spotlight on stories of real people doing good in their communities, while providing others with opportunities to do the same. Eastern will also be engaging Bostonians on the street through a series of surprise and delight events.
“As a community bank, Eastern Bank’s success depends on a vibrant and prosperous community,” says Bob Rivers, Chairman and CEO of Eastern Bank. “Join Us For Good is a tangible expression of our brand purpose and our commitment to doing things that help people prosper, the very reason we were founded in 1818.”
To kick off Join Us For Good, between March 7 and April 4, 2017 New Englanders can get involved by participating in Eastern Bank’s Selfies For Good giveaway. In a nod to Eastern’s upcoming 200th anniversary in 2018, the bank will be giving away $200 to five-hundred randomly selected lucky winners who submit a selfie using #JoinUsForGood on Twitter or Instagram.
