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 $750 was donated to the Branch Area Food Panty in Coldwater, Marshall Area Community Services in Marshall, and Kings Cupboard and St. Anthony’s Family Center in Hillsdale, where Monarch has branches. “We felt this year like our community could use the money better than our customers could use a small token of our appreciation,” said Don Denney, 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 Denney.
Monarch Community Bank has branches located in Marshall, Coldwater, Union City and Hillsdale. For more information about Monarch Community Bank products and services, go to www.monarchcb.com or call your local branch.
