Park Bank has donated $10,206 to Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin as part of the financial institution’s credit card program. This contribution was made today to Dan Stein, President/CEO, Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin, a nonprofit hunger-relief charity that provides food to partner agencies and helps raise awareness on the issue. The donation was part of Second Harvest’s $2 million capital fundraising effort that will enable the organization to provide healthier food options for individuals and families.
“Second Harvest’s mission is to end hunger via community partnerships. As a community bank, Park Bank understands the positive impact we can make right here in Dane County to help our neighbors,” said Jim Hegenbarth, Park Bank’s President/CEO. Hegenbarth continued, “Park Bank’s history of providing support to Dane County organizations goes beyond monetary donations to local not-for-profit groups. Park Bank also encourages its employees to be involved in the community through tutoring at local schools, assisting the elderly, volunteering at local food pantries and working with Junior Achievement to name a few.”
“Our Food.Health.Hope. building campaign relied on many community partners, like Park Bank, to create an updated and expanded facility to store fresh and nutritious food,” said Dan Stein, Second Harvest president/CEO. “We are grateful to Park Bank for supporting this effort to provide fresh food to people and reduce the health consequences that result from poor diet and nutrition.”
