The Marshfield Area United Way was recently presented with a $1,000 check from Prevail Bank to support those programs and services that benefit low-to-moderate income individuals and families.
“We are proud to support the Marshfield Area United Way and the families of Wood County,” said Denise Sonnemann, Prevail Bank branch manager of Marshfield. “We’re a community bank that is passionate about economic development; financial stability; and the health, welfare, and growth of individuals, families, and businesses.”
“Each year, the Marshfield Area United Way plays a vital role in funding programs that support thousands of families and individuals,” said Ashley Winch, Marshfield Area United Way’s executive director. “The initiatives supported range from homelessness, hunger, and domestic violence, to assisting the elderly and disabled, promoting healthy lifestyles, and mental health needs. Prevail Bank’s donation will be used to fund and support our most vulnerable populations.” Last year, the Marshfield Area United Way served over 12,000 community members.
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.
