Prevail Bank Donates $39,005 Through Charitable Contributions Program

Prevail Bank Donates $39,005 to Many Initiatives in Local Communities

 

At Prevail Bank, our goal is to help our customers, communities and employees pursue what’s possible. Being a community bank means that we are always looking for ways to enhance the quality of life in our surrounding communities. We believe that through the power of donation, we can continuously play a part in the success of local organizations, and in the community as a whole. Those organizations that applied and received a Charitable Contribution this fall are listed below.

It warms our heart to be able to contribute and assist so many!

Junior Achievement of NWD

Prevail Bank donated $1,000 to the Junior Achievement of WI – Northwest WI organization (Eau Claire).  These funds will support two classrooms of students, providing the materials needed to provide them with an education related to entrepreneurship, financial literacy and workplace readiness from community leader volunteers.

Medford Area School District

Seven-hundred-fifty dollars ($750) was provided to the Medford Area School District to help purchase Junior Achievement kits for all K-4 classrooms. We’re excited to help local youth learn the importance of financial education early on.

Feed My People, Inc.

A donation of $6,275 was made to the Feed My People, Inc. This organization enhances the lives of 70,000 people, via 200 different food pantries, in 14 Wisconsin counties. We commend them on their efforts, serving those financially constrained and would otherwise go hungry.  These funds will be put toward the purpose of a forklift, so the organization may load and unload trucks to deliver thousands of pounds of food every day --- or a total of 8.3 million pounds a year.

United Way of South Wood & Adams Counties

Prevail Bank donated $2,500 to the United Way of South Wood & Adams Counties to support specific programming that assists the low-to-moderate income individuals and families --- those being food pantries and backpack programs. We commend their effort and success in making Wisconsin Rapids and its surrounding communities great places to live and enhancing the standard of living for many.

Logger’s United Booster Club

A $10,000 check, a partial payment of a $25,000 pledge, was presented to the Logger’s United Booster Club to build a new equipment facility at the high school’s track, field and ball diamond complex.  The Logger’s United Booster Club is a hard-working organization; it assists the Phillips’ school district and the tax payers of the community in making it a better place to live, learn, and grow for our children. The improvements made to the athletic field/complex will make it more viable host for out-of-town tournaments, which in turn stimulates the local community financially.

Children’s Museum of Marathon County / Children’s Imaginarium

A donation of $3,000 was made to the Community Foundation of North Central WI for the benefit of a professionally designed, highly educational, STEM-focused (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) Children’s Museum in Marathon County — Children’s Imaginarium.  The Children’s Imaginarium is part of Wausau’s downtown redevelopment plan. An October 2022 grand opening is anticipated.

The Red Letter Grant

Prevail Bank provided a donation of $2,000 to The Red Letter Grant organization to help support female entrepreneurs who couldn’t otherwise secure new business start-up capital. We commend the organization for its support and assistance in stimulating local communities financially, revitalizing smaller main streets, and increasing the general quality of life for folks in Wisconsin.

FOCUS – Feeding Our Communities with United Services

Through our Charitable Contribution program, we donated $5,000 to FOCUS. FOCUS is the collaboration and merger of three non-profits with similar missions and visions, that being, feeding those who are hungry in Wood and Adams counties. The organizations, once known as South Wood Emerging Pantry Shelf, The Neighborhood Table, and the Rapids Family Backpacks programs, are building one facility from which they would all operate as one, which is more effective in addressing food insecurity than any individual program alone. The funding Prevail Bank provided will go toward the purchase of a new Walk-In Cooler that will house the food required to produce 43,440 meals a year for the low-to-moderate income individuals and families they serve.

Christmas in July Charity

The Christmas in July Charity helps fund non-budgeted items that help children in the Marshfield Children’s Hospital. Prevail Bank donated $500 to support the only Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in central and northern Wisconsin to help enhance the healing process and/or the comfort needed for those parents that are preparing to say goodbye to their child through a precious moment memories handmade ‘grasping hands’ (theirs with their child’s) mold that will capture their love forever.

Indianhead Community Action Agency, Inc.

A donation of $500 was provided to the Indianhead Community Action Agency as part of our Charitable Contribution program. This donation will purchase boxes and bags for parceling and delivering food in three Wisconsin counties through a mobile food pantry truck. The mobile food pantry serves smaller, rural communities, and is especially appreciated by those individuals and families who lack transportation and would otherwise go hungry. 

Workforce Resource, Inc.

One-thousand-nine-hundred-eighty dollars ($1,980) was donated to the Workforce Resource, Inc. (WRI) organization to assist them in the engagement and enrollment of low-to-moderate income individuals into its programming and career readiness workshops; helping community members become work-ready and securing them employment. We applaud WRI on its efforts of enhancing the standard of living of those they assist, stimulating local communities financially, and reducing the current labor market shortage in nine Wisconsin counties.

Taylor County Supportive Housing, Inc.

The Taylor County Supportive Housing organization is working to open a homeless shelter in the Medford community. Prevail Bank provided $3,000 to renovate a women’s sleeping room quarters that will provide a safe and dry haven for multiple women for up to 90 days, in addition to warm meals, support, and guidance to help them achieve independence and financial stability.

Marshfield Area Chamber of Commerce / Wildwood Park Zoological Society
