MARSHALL – Chemical Bank has made a $2,000 donation to Oaklawn Hospital’s general fund to support its charitable work in community health care.
“Oaklawn does a great deal of good in the communities it serves,” said Catherine Yates, vice president/commercial loan officer for the bank. “So, over the years, we’ve supported Oaklawn as volunteers and we’ve provided monetary help as well. We believe in what Oaklawn does.”
Ginger Williams, Oaklawn’s president and CEO, said the donation was another demonstration of the longstanding ties between the bank and the hospital as community institutions.
“We’ve had a very good relationship with Chemical Bank and we appreciate its support,” said Williams, who has served on the bank’s board for seven years.
Chemical Bank – which operates two branches in Marshall – believes corporate responsibility includes making a long-term commitment to local communities, its employees and to future generations, said Yates, who joined Oaklawn’s board of directors this past February.
“Chemical Bank employees are leaders, members and volunteers of charitable organizations and community events, and they continue to volunteer their service with several local organizations,” Yates said.
“In addition to their support of Oaklawn, our Marshall employees have lent their support to the United Way, Junior Achievement, 4-H clubs, Habitat for Humanity, the American Cancer Society, and the Chamber of Commerce, among others,” Yates said
