The MEG Foundation - Jeans Day

North Shore Bank employees donate $1,000 in Jeans Day Dollars to The M.E.G. Foundation in Saugus, Massachusetts

In 2006, the Cliftondale School Study Committee in Saugus, Massachusetts presented a report to the Board of Selectman on the feasibility of preserving and restoring the old school building. The M.E.G. Foundation was then established to address these goals and a multi-year lease with the Town of Saugus was granted. Named for Miss Marleah Elizabeth Graves, who taught at the Cliftondale School for 47 years, the foundation's mission was to create a center of culture, education and civic pride for the entire community within this building.

Since the establishment of the foundation, both the interior and exterior of the building has been restored, with approximately 75 windows being replaced to make the building energy efficient while still retaining the architectural beauty and integrity. Recently, North Shore Bank employees donated $1,000 to The M.E.G. Foundation. Proceeds were given as part of the Bank's Jeans Day program.
On behalf of The M.E.G. Foundation, we extend our deepest appreciation to the employees of North Shore Bank.This thoughtful gift will go a long way in helping us realize our objective of making the M.E.G. building handicap accessible in the near future..
