Augusta: Laura J. Hudson, Vice President & Chief Experience Officer of Kennebec Savings Bank (KSB), announced the most recent monthly winner of the Bank’s program for employees around charitable giving. Called Compassion Day, the Bank randomly chooses one name from its team of 107 employees each month and gives that employee $500 of Bank donations to direct to any charity of their choice.

This past month’s winner of KSB’s Compassion Day was Kathy Stone, Data Processing Team Leader at the Bank’s main office. Kathy chose to direct her donation to the Literacy Volunteers of Greater Augusta (LVA).
