---- — The Napoleon State Bank representatives recently presented a $2,500 check to the Margaret Mary Health Foundation’s cancer fund, reported Becky Walter, Margaret Mary Health communications specialist. In celebration of its 110th anniversary, the bank raised the funds through a yearlong community fundraiser.

“To celebrate our 110th year in business, we had a large anniversary card constructed and it has been with us at all our community events, as well as on tour at our branches,” said marketing coordinator Melea Gault. “The community has been signing the card, and for every signature we received, our bank donated $1 to our local cancer programs. So many of our employees have been impacted by cancer that we wanted to show our local hospitals how much we appreciate all they do.”

MMHF was established in 2012 to raise money to enhance hospital programs, services, technology and educational opportunities, and to engage the community as partners in health improvement.

Foundation executive director Mary Dickey says, “We are so appreciative of Napoleon State Bank’s generous donation to the ... cancer fund. Their contribution demonstrates their commitment to supporting the health and wellness of our communities, and for that, we are truly grateful.”
