The tiny Dungog Uniting Church Playgroup has received a welcome boost to help them continue to nourish little people's minds and provide fellowship for parents and caregivers.

Commonwealth Bank Dungog branch employees have donated a marquee to the playgroup along with $500 to fund new equipment, as part of a nationwide community donation program.

Commonwealth Bank Dungog Branch Manager Karen Hancock said she and her staff were excited to have the opportunity to support the playgroup.

"In particular, the availability of an informal session in the community where parents, grandparents, caregivers, children and babies can meet up in a relaxed and friendly environment," Ms Hancock said. "So it's great to be able to give back and support this work."

The Commonwealth Bank has pledged to donate $500,000 nationally to recognise organisations that make a difference.

Each branch has been allocated $500 to donate to causes important to their local community.
