FULTON – As the Fulton Block Builder (FBB) program continues its fundraising campaign, businesses and individuals have again shown their continued support. Recently, one of the city’s oldest financial institutions, Fulton Savings Bank, once again stepped up to help ensure FBB’s success.
According to the Fulton Savings Banks Historical Records, in 1871 a group of civic leaders organized the Fulton Savings Bank “to receive deposits from shopkeepers, clerks, mechanics, laborers, miners, servants, and others.” The bank’s first location was in a rented room at the northeast corner of Second and Oneida streets. Since then, Fulton Savings Bank has served the greater community of Fulton.
According to Linda Eagan, Executive Director of FBB, “Fulton Savings Bank’s donation to FBB is another commitment to their philosophy. Since the launch of FBB in 2017, we have seen this community come together in so many positive ways and the support of Fulton Savings Bank is one of them.
“From the start, the bank has supported FBB’s unique approach to community revitalization, which strives to generate neighborhood pride and help homeowners and landlords recoup some of the cost of their real estate investment. outside. The main characteristic of this approach is to build on strengths rather than simply correcting weaknesses. This support for our hometown is truly inspiring.
“Fulton Savings Bank is proud to be an ongoing sponsor of this exciting initiative,” said Pamela Caraccioli, President and CEO. “Thank you to everyone involved with Fulton Block Builders for their continued work to revitalize our community.”
