TIFFIN – The Old Fort Banking Company proudly announces multiple service, volunteer and donation efforts during its second quarter, in support of the communities it serves.
In April, Old Fort Bank presented a donation of $5,000 to the Bucyrus-Tiffin Community YMCA in support of its Annual Banner Fund Campaign. Funds raised from the effort will support YMCA programs, which focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
“Old Fort Bank has always been a generous supporter of the Tiffin YMCA. They understand and recognize the YMCA is more than a workout facility,” said President and CEO of YMCA of Bucyrus-Tiffin Buster Ardner. “The Y is a mission-driven organization that strives to have a positive impact on the lives in the community we serve. Together we can help people of all ages lead healthier lives and strengthen the bonds of our community.”
Additionally, this June, staff volunteers from Old Fort Bank’s Downtown Tiffin financial center participated in cleanup efforts throughout the city in preparation for the Summer Stroll. Old Fort associates donned gloves, garbage bags, and a broom as they picked up litter ranging from broken glass, to cans and bottles, to cigarette butts, found in the streets, parking lots and alleys.
Old Fort bank staff members also proudly participated in United Way’s Relay for Life, held annually at Conner Park in Ballville. More than 20 OFBC associates gathered for the walk on behalf of the bank. The Relay for Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraiser to find a cure for cancer.
Lastly, after the Dayton-area was struck by a series of tornadoes at the end of May, Old Fort Bank pooled together donations of bottled water and money. The gifts were presented to a Dayton-area service organization focused on providing relief and clean-up efforts in the city.
“We are proud to support the communities we serve through these initiatives, with donations of both time and resources,” said Old Fort Banking Company President and CEO Mike Spragg. “We are immensely proud of the lengths to which our associates have gone to support their friends and neighbors. It is our hope that these efforts will help to further strengthen our communities, and we’re honored to do our part to help.”
