It’s All in the Name: Community Bank Celebrates its 5th National Good Neighbor Day

September 28 is a special day for Community Bank. Originally created in 1971 by Becky Mattson from Lakeside, Montana, and proclaimed a national day by President Jimmy Carter in 1978, Good Neighbor Day was established to raise public awareness that good neighbors help achieve human understanding and build strong, thriving communities.

And Community Bank strives to do just that. For five consecutive years, Community Bank has celebrated Good Neighbor Day through community donations and initiatives across the bank’s four-state footprint. This year, Community Bank donated $56,500 to local nonprofits in New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, and Massachusetts.

Community—it’s in our name and our DNA, and when it comes to giving back, we want the decisions made locally by people living in the community they support. National Good Neighbor Day is our opportunity to say “thank you” to the organizations that make a difference in our lives and the lives of our neighbors.

It’s about making a difference and helping one cause, one person, one community at a time—together.


Better banking starts with trust—and we’re honored to be recognized for it.
