West Shore Bank, in partnership with Shop-N-Save of Ludington, Hansen Foods in Hart, and Oleson’s Foods in Manistee, is pleased to announce that 451 meals will be distributed to Mason, Oceana and Manistee County food banks as a result of the recent West Shore Bank “Spirit of Giving” fundraising efforts.
For three weeks West Shore Bank collected funds from Mason, Oceana and Manistee County employees, residents and businesses at their local branch offices. Arrangements were made and coordinated with each partner to purchase a complete meal at a special price. “The bank staff and I appreciate the individuals and businesses that support this cause,” stated Raymond Biggs, President and CEO of West Shore Bank. “Helping those struggling in our own community during the Holiday season is what makes this ‘Spirit of Giving’ effort so important. We’re committed to finding ways we can make a difference in our local communities and providing a meal at Christmas is one way we can do that.” A total of $5,710 was raised, which included a $2,000 match from West Shore Bank.
West Shore Bank has been serving the financial needs of Mason, Manistee, and Oceana Counties since 1898. The Bank, with assets exceeding $360 million, currently has eight offices in Ludington, Scottville, Manistee, Fountain, Hart, and Walkerville.
