Michael Hewitt, President and CEO of bankHometown, announced that bankHometown has made a donation of $1,000 for the Woodstock playground.

Viktor Toth, Superintendent, along with Wendy Durand, WMS Principal and Crystal Adams, Woodstock Playground Committee Chair, recently received a check for $1,000 from bankHometown’s Woodstock Branch Manager George Dimopoulos.

With this donation, the Woodstock Playground Committee is now over half of the way to their $100,000 goal. The playground will be located behind the Woodstock Middle School and is well designed for older children. It will also be available for area families and children to enjoy when classes are not in session. In addition, families at the adjacent sports fields will be able to use the playground during practices and games.

“We are very grateful for the support and trust bankHometown has shown us,” said Adams. “They have also generously allowed us to use their coin-counting machine during our recent Pennies for Playground’s fundraiser. We look forward to inviting them next year to the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the playground.”
