The Captain Job Knapp Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution recently presented a Community Service Award to UniBank for their support of the Chapter’s Good Citizens Awards.
Chapter Regent Noveline Beltram presented the certificate to Vice President and Relationship Branch Manager Karen M. Yacino at the Douglas branch of UniBank. The award recognizes the philanthropic support that UniBank provides to the community aligning also with the mission of the Daughters of the American Revolution to promote historic preservation, education and patriotism.
UniBank supports the chapter’s annual DAR Good Citizen Award and Scholarship. A senior from four area high schools, Douglas, Northbridge, Blackstone Valley and Whitinsville Christian, is selected from each high school. Through UniBank’s generous support the chapter awards each of these students with a scholarship. UniBank also recently joined with the DAR to provide necessary grants to fund the recent renovations to the Jenckes Store in Douglas. UniBank’s commitment to the improvement of our communities is numerous. The DAR commends UniBank for being a valued organization in the community.
