HAVERHILL — Pentucket Bank representatives visited the Friendship Drive Housing Cooperative in Salem, N.H., on Sept. 12, along with the Rev. David Yasenka of the Triumphant Cross Lutheran Church and Tara Reardon, director of the NH Community Loan Fund, to present the Loan Fund with a check for $10,000. The donation from the bank will be used to assist the Friendship Drive Housing Cooperative in installing concrete pads for the heating oil tanks that belong to the Coop’s rental units. EPA guidelines have prohibited oil companies from delivering oil to any unit that does not sit securely on a concrete base; seven of the units at Friendship Drive did not comply and would therefore not have been able to receive oil deliveries after Oct. 1. Pentucket Bank Senior Vice President John DeBaun was made aware of this issue by the Rev. David Yasenka and worked with Pentucket Bank President/CEO Scott Cote to determine a way in which the bank could assist. The donation of $10,000 was sent to the NH Community Loan Fund, the organization that will then filter the funds to the Housing Cooperative as they are needed to pay for the work. This donation will also allow the Housing Coop to pour a new slab for a new, donated housing unit to be placed in the housing park. This will offer a currently displaced Salem family a stable place to live. For more information, visit pentucketbank.com and facebook.com/pentucketbank.
