Martha’s Vineyard Savings Bank has donated $5,000 to the Oak Bluffs Firemen’s Civic Association to purchase weight-training equipment for a new exercise and fitness room at the Oak Bluffs fire station.

Savings bank credit manager Rachel BenDavid brought forward the fire station’s need for the equipment, the bank said in a press release.

“Looking for meaningful ways of giving back to our community runs deep among our staff,” bank president Paul Falvey said. “We are grateful to Rachel for helping us show our appreciation for the service of the men and women in the Oak Bluffs Fire Department in this way.”

The Oak Bluffs fire department is responsible for med flights and transports from the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital to Boston hospitals, the bank noted, as well as providing EMTs for sports events at the high school and ice arena.
