The Personal Development Center (PDC), a domestic abuse and sexual assault shelter in Marshfield, received from Prevail Bank’s Charitable Contributions Program $1,000 to enhance and support their facility and services.

“We are proud to support the Personal Development Center and the individuals and families of Wood County,” said Denise Sonnemann, Prevail Bank branch manager – Marshfield. “We’re a community bank that is passionate about economic development; the financial stability; and the health, welfare, and growth of individuals, families, and businesses.”

“We provide shelter and services to persons who have experienced domestic abuse or sexual violence,” said Renee Schulz, PDC’s executive director. “It is our goal to help survivors transition to a safe future as a productive member of our community. PDC services are available to anyone in need and all services are free of charge. Prevail Bank’s donation is greatly appreciated and will certainly assist us in this endeavor.”

The Charitable Contributions program of Prevail Bank is available for local non-profits that help local people in need, especially those with low-to-moderate incomes; stimulate communities financially; and/or enhances the standard of living of those less fortunate.
