A pair of Connecticut banks announced big donations to their communities totaling nearly $90,000 this week.

Jewett City Savings Bank, based in Griswold’s largest village of the same name, gave $33,000 in grants to a range of local emergency services causes.

Sterling Volunteer Fire Company received a $2,000 grant from the bank to purchase warning lights and a shatterproof windshield for the company’s new utility vehicle, a $1,500 grant was awarded to the East Killingly Fire Department to help fund a rescue sled and a second a $1,500 grant was given to the Mortlake Fire Co. & Ambulance Service in Brooklyn to finish funding their iPad program, which provides electronic aids on all rescue vehicles.

In addition, the Jewett City Fire Department was given $1,000 to partially fund an electric ventilation fan on their new fire truck and the Atwood Hose Fire Company in Wauregan got $1,000 to help purchase a similar device. Earlier this year, the Plainfield Police Department received a $1,873 grant in honor of the Bank’s 150th Anniversary that was applied toward the installation of a new LED sign outside the department.

In addition to this $8,873 in money for special projects, the bank also gave out $25,100 in annual support to dozens of local professional and volunteer fire and EMS departments.

Thomaston Savings Bank, which operates in the Waterbury and Bristol areas, donated more than $49,000 to the United Way’s annual “Workplace Campaign,” with the money coming from employees of the bank and represented a roughly $4,000 increase over last year’s gift.

“We undertake this campaign annually to assist the United Way in their essential work, supporting our neighbors in need. I am so proud of the Thomaston Savings Bank team for their generosity and for stepping up time after time. The results of this year’s campaign are tremendous; it speaks to the character of our employees and conveys the culture of the Bank,” Thomaston Savings Bank Vice President and community outreach officer Cheryl Lindstrom said in a statement.
