North Shore Bank recently made a $30,000 contribution to Harborlight Community Partners, an organization providing affordable housing with supportive services for low and moderate income families, seniors, and individuals living in the region North of Boston. 

The Bank’s contribution was made through the Community Investment Tax Credit (CITC) program, which is designed to allow local businesses to work with community development corporations (CDCs) and partner with nonprofit organizations to improve economic opportunities for low and moderate income households.

North Shore Bank Chief Executive Officer, Kevin M. Tierney said:

We understand the importance of affordable workforce housing options in our local communities and we hope this contribution will help make a difference in the lives of those most in need.” He added, “Harborlight Community Partners is a wonderful organization and does amazing work for families on the North Shore.    

Andrew DeFranza, Executive Director of Harborlight Community Partners said:

Local support like this is critical to our housing mission. We are grateful.” He went on to say, “North Shore Bank is a leader in making investments that drive significant impact in the community. This gift to Harborlight Community Partners, to create housing for those in need and our essential workers, is just one of the many reasons why North Shore Bank is an outstanding partner in this work.
