In the spirit of a difficult holiday season for many people, the management at Monarch Community Bank decided that although Christmas gifts for customers are nice, this year they would put the money to better use. With the money that is usually spent on gifts, the bank made donations instead to area food pantries.
A total of $900 was donated to the Branch Area Food Panty in Coldwater, Marshall Fountain Clinic in Marshall, and Salvation Army in Hillsdale, where Monarch has branches. “In the spirit of giving, we thought it would again be appropriate to give to those that need it,” said Rick DeVries, President/CEO. Monarch customers were notified that a donation had been made in their name to the food pantries in a holiday card that was sent. “It feels good to give back and we know our customers understand the need,” said DeVries.
Established in 1934, Monarch Community Bank has branches located in Marshall, Coldwater, Union City and Hillsdale. For more information about Monarch Community Bank products and services, connect on Facebook, Twitter, the blog or go to www.monarchcb.com.
