FULTON, NY – Annette Cotton, Assistant Vice President of Fulton Savings Bank and Roberta Dunn, Vice President are shown here after presenting Heather Crofoot, Fulton Block Builder (FBB) Ambassador with a check for $10,000.00 for the FBB project.
“Fulton Savings Bank is proud to be a Corporate Sponsor of this exciting initiative and thanks all those involved for their continued enthusiasm and hard work!” Cotton said.
Bringing homeowners together in one block builds community and generates confidence.
“Residents of the city are encouraged to start organizing their blocks as final applications will be due April 10. Home owners are asked to go the FBB website for help with this organization. On the website residents will find sample letters, tips, frequently asked questions and application forms,” Crofoot said.
Fulton Block Builders is a program that generates neighborhood pride and helps homeowners and property owners recover part of the cost of their exterior property investment. The core feature of this approach is to build on strengths rather than just fix weaknesses.
In 1871, a group of civic leaders organized Fulton Savings Bank “to receive deposits from tradesmen, clerks, mechanics, laborers, minors, servants and others.”
The first Bank location was in a rented room at the northeast corner of Second and Oneida Streets. The Bank has been serving the greater Fulton community ever since and continues to “Build Trust for Generations.”
This donation to FBB is another commitment to that philosophy.
Eastern Shore Associates is a 100% employee-owned organization with over 80 insurance professionals operating from six branch offices throughout Central and Upstate New York.
They work with over 30 insurance companies, giving them the ability to find the best solution to each of their customers’ insurance needs.
The employee-owners live and work in the same communities as their customers, and are dedicated to helping protect the homes, automobiles, and businesses of our neighbors.
Supporting the FBB project is a natural for the entire Eastern Shore team.
Fulton Block Builders is a volunteer grassroots organization dedicated to community revitalization one block at a time within the city of Fulton.
The fundraising goal for 2019 is $75,000.00. If FBB is successful in raising the full amount, the Richard S. Shineman Foundation has committed $150,000.00 to the Fulton Block Builder program.
FBB is extremely grateful to Fulton Savings Bank, Eastern Shore Associates, and the Richard S. Shineman Foundation for their support of this program and encourages others to follow their lead.
Whether you are an individual, a business, or a community group, FBB asks that you help support this energizing program by donating today. Every dollar helps FBB reach this goal!
