With COVID-19 numbers on the rise in Boston and across the state, East Boston Saving Bank (EBSB) is doing its part to keep the community safe by donating individual hand sanitizer to East Boston Central Catholic School (EBCCS) in preparation that the school will be able to bring students into the building for in-person learning.
Mr. Casaletto, Principal at EBCCS said, “East Boston Savings Bank has always been an amazing community partner and when we began the process to prepare for in-person learning, we reached out to the bank for help. Some supplies were more difficult to get than others and individual hand sanitizer was one of those items. As always, EBSB didn’t disappoint.”
EBCCS is currently operating in a full remote model for grades 1-8 due to the high COVID-19 positivity rate in East Boston (currently over 9%) and the surrounding communities (Red Zones), but it is still taking steps to prepare for the move to Hybrid and then to all-in as soon as it is safe to do so. The school has already purchased portable sinks, air purifiers for every classroom, individual student privacy shields, a Clorox 360 electrostatic sprayer, and various other cleaning supplies and protective equipment to ensure the safety of the students and faculty.
East Boston Savings Bank has been and continues to be an outstanding community partner to all.
