Lowell Five Bank Announces High Pointe House as Employee Charitable Giving Award Recipient


Tewksbury, MA – The Lowell Five Employee Charitable Giving Committee is proud to announce that High Pointe House is the Second Quarter Charitable Giving Award recipient.

High Pointe House offers patients who need specialized end-of-life care, physical, spiritual and emotional support in a comfortable home-like environment.  The residence contains 21 private suites as well as a library, indoor and outdoor dining areas, family gathering areas, walkways, and gardens.  High Pointe House also offers grief and bereavement support to the families and loved ones of patients facing life-limiting illnesses.

On Monday, August 6, 2018, Lowell Five Bank CEO and President, David Wallace, and a group of representatives from the Employee Charitable Giving Committee (ECGC), presented Karen Gomes, RN, MS, CPHQ, President and CEO of Home Health Foundation, which includes Merrimack Valley Hospice and Donna Deveau, Vice President of Corporate Communications and Community Engagement for Home Health Foundation, with a check for $7,800.  The award represents the total Employee Elected Charitable Payroll Contribution for the 2nd Quarter of 2018, equally matched by Lowell Five Bank. The ECGC also organized an employee blanket drive for hospice residents and delivered the donated items to High Pointe House.

“We are honored by the outpouring of support and generosity from the employees of Lowell Five Bank,” said Karen Gomes. “We applaud their community commitment and are honored they chose High Pointe House, our hospice and palliative care residence, for their quarterly giving program.   This special gift will be used to directly benefit patients and their families who rely on us as they face one of life’s most defining moments.”

Each year, Lowell Five’s Employees choose four charitable organizations from a list of employee elected nominees to be the recipients of a Quarterly Charitable Giving Award.  The proceeds of the award are comprised of voluntary employee donations matched by the Bank.  The Lowell Humane Society was the recipient of the Lowell Five Employee Charitable Giving Award for the first quarter 2018.
