Prevail Bank donated $1,980 to Workforce Resource, Inc (WRI) to assist them in the engagement and enrollment of low-to-moderate income individuals into its programming and career readiness workshops — helping community members become work-ready and securing them employment.

“We really appreciate Prevail Bank’s generosity and assistance,” said Christian Blaisdell, Workforce Resource, Inc.’s chief executive officer. “It is difficult to achieve a job’s objectives if you don’t have the proper tools and equipment. Prevail Bank rectified that situation for us. We are most grateful.”

Brenda Knutson, Prevail Bank marketing coordinator, shared, “We applaud WRI on its efforts, enhancing the standard of living of those they assist, stimulating local communities financially, and reducing the current labor market shortage in nine Wisconsin counties. We are proud to support them.”
