When we at People’s United Bank first heard of the Rutland Blooms project, our immediate thought was, how can we get involved? After thinking about it briefly, we came up with an idea.

At People’s United Bank, community is an important part of who we are. In every community we serve, we strive to be a meaningful part of the community and to serve the community as well as we can. Being an active business leader is part of that mission.

With Rutland Blooms, we wanted to do something that would both beautify the greater Rutland community and demonstrate our commitment to our customers and the city. With that in mind, we have purchased thousands of packets of flower seeds, which are available free to any customer or local resident who stops by our local offices.

Rutland is on an upswing, and we want to be a part of making this great city even better. We encourage anyone interested in helping to stop by, pick up some seeds and plant them today. Together we really can help Rutland Bloom.
