On December 17, 2013, representatives from The Napoleon State Bank presented the Margaret Mary Health Foundation's cancer fund with a check for $2,500. In celebration of its 110th anniversary, The Napoleon State Bank raised the funds through a year-long community fundraiser.
"To celebrate our 110th year in business, we had a large anniversary card constructed and it has been with us at all our community events, as well as on tour at our branches," said Melea Gault, marketing coordinator for The Napoleon State Bank. "The community has been signing the card, and for every signature we received, our bank donated $1 to our local cancer programs. So many of our employees have been impacted by cancer that we wanted to show our local hospitals how much we appreciate all they do."
Margaret Mary's Health Foundation was established in 2012 to raise money to enhance hospital programs, services, technology and educational opportunities, and to engage the community as partners in health improvement.
Mary Dickey, Executive Director of the Foundation says, "We are so appreciatived of The Napoleon State Bank's generous donation to the Health Foundation's cancer fund. Their contribution demonstrates their commitment to supporting the health and wellness of our communities, and for that, we are truly grateful."
