Employees from the Parkes branch of the Commonwealth Bank have donated $500 to the Parkes Men's Shed as part of a nationwide community donation program.

Commonwealth Bank is committed to driving positive change within its communities to make a difference locally and for all Australians.

The bank has again pledged to donate $500,000 nationally, to recognise organisations that make a difference in the communities in which we live and work.

Each Commonwealth Bank branch and customer-facing team has been allocated $500 to donate to causes important to their local community.

The Parkes team voted to support the great work of the Parkes Men's Shed.

"After a challenging start to the year with devastating bushfires and now the coronavirus pandemic, it's timely to give back to local organisations who do good work in our community," Parkes branch manager Troy Peters said.

"We are pleased to support Parkes Men's Shed.

"In particular, mateships which are formed through the group, so it's great to be able to support them in this great work."
