In the 24 years I've worked for Martha's Vineyard Bank, I've seen the Bank's commitment to the community grow by leaps and bounds. I have volunteered at many nonprofits on and off the Island, which the Bank promotes by giving employees 8 paid hours, during work time, to volunteer for the charity of their choice. It is amazing how Martha's Vineyard Bank and its employees can show their care for their communities through this good work!
