June 23, 2020
A New Hampshire bank is reaching out with masks for all of its senior customers. Franklin Savings Bank recently mailed over 6,200 cotton face masks donning its logo to all customers over age 65. The bank said the face masks were sent to this select group of customers in an effort to protect this most “vulnerable” age group against possible exposure to the COVID-19 virus.
According to the bank, the masks are made of three-ply cotton material provided by Hanes. They can be washed and worn repeatedly. Franklin Savings spent $14,600 for the 6,200 masks as well as an additional $5,600 to print a letter to accompany them along with postage. The total project cos $20,200.
“With our lobbies now open for in-person banking, we are requiring all customers entering our branches to wear a mask in order to keep our staff and customers safe and healthy,” said Ron Magoon, President & CEO. “According to the CDC guidelines, the wearing of masks, when combined with other efforts such as social distancing, helps limit the transmission of the virus. Therefore, it is our hope that our customers will use their new mask as part of their overall efforts to remain healthy during these unprecedented times.”
