Dear Valued Customers & Community Members,
At Sawyer Savings Bank, our goal over these past few months has been to provide a safe environment, while providing essential and exceptional financial services to our members.
It has been a time like no other and we, like you, have had to do things in ways that were never done before.
As always, our first priority is to ensure our staff remains healthy in order to continue to serve the needs of our customers and communities. As the number of COVID-19 cases across our Hudson Valley area continues to rise, we have decided to restrict access to our branch lobbies effective Monday, November 23, 2020. Our drive ups will remain open during normal business hours.
These temporary changes are being made out of an abundance of caution as preventative measures to decrease the number of people interacting within our branches and create greater social distance between our teams and customers, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and health guidelines from both State and National governmental agencies regarding the pandemic.
“The safety and security of our customers and staff remains our number one priority,” said Doug Sturges, President. “In light of the increasing number of COVID cases across our area, we wanted to do our part to help slow the spread by temporarily moving to drive-up service and our fast track banking depository. We apologize to our customers for any inconveniences this may cause, but ensure you that our staff is ready to work with you as needed. You can also access your accounts through online banking, our mobile apps, and our network of ATM’s.”
Your trust in us over the past several months has not gone unnoticed and we are so grateful for your continued support. We are committed to providing you with financial assistance you need during these unusual times. And we will always be here for you, just has we have been for the past 150 years. We appreciate your business and your understanding and we recognize the adverse impact this is having on all of us. We will continue to communicate with you just as we’ve been doing throughout the last several months. Thank you for your flexibility as we do our part for the health and safety of our customers, staff, and community.
