Homes With Hope
Connecticut Community Bank continues to lend assistance to our local communities. We recently had the pleasure of donating food items to Homes with Hope's food pantry in Westport.
Connecticut Community Bank employees gathered together to make 231 Paracord Survival Bracelets for Operation Gratitude to distribute to our troops! Nice job everyone!
Not only do these bracelets look cool, they can actually be used to save a life in an emergency situation. All who serve use paracord, which gets its name from parachute cord and can hold up to 550 lbs. of weight. The bracelet provides 7.5 feet of cord in an emergency. Paracord “Survival” Bracelets can be used to:
- Secure camouflage nets to trees or vehicles
- Build a makeshift shelter
- Extend a security strap or rope to reach and haul heavy objects
- Create a harness to extract an injured person from a bad location
- Make a sling or splint
And those are just a few of the ways to use the full paracord! Cut the paracord and remove the 7 to 9 individual nylon strands inside it (the “guts”) and now you have finer strong string to use as:
- Sewing thread to repair gear
- Emergency sutures to close a wound
- Fishing line
- Trip line to secure an area
