ATB Financial welcomed community members for a 10-minute in-house massage last Wednesday, with a goal of raising and donating $1,000 to United Way.

Suzanne Carley, a registered massage therapist, volunteered her time and massaged clients with rich smelling essential oils and creams for a $10 donation to the organization.

“It’s a nice time to take for yourself from the stresses of the week and it feels longer than 10 minutes,” said ATB client Dawn Wickberg as Carley worked to stretch out her neck muscles.

Personal banking specialist Marion Frame is working to promote awareness of what United Way does, and hopes to raise and donate $1,000.

Frame said that raising money for United Way hits home for her, as some of her relatives have been supported by United Way-sponsored programs.

“About one in three people benefit from United Way,” she said. “It’s a good organization and I like to support it.”
