Donation Launches Business Community Portion of COVE's Capital Campaign
In keeping with its commitment of “making a real difference” in the communities it serves, West Shore Bank is pleased to donate $15,000 to the Capital Campaign for COVE, making them the first corporate donor and launching the public portion of COVE’s capital campaign.
“COVE is such an important organization in our community,” said President of West Shore Bank, Raymond Biggs. “Our goal of making a real difference in communities matches COVE’s mission. We’re honored to offer our support and encourage others to also support this campaign.”
Communities Overcoming Violent Encounters (COVE) is a non-profit organization that empowers victims of violence in Mason, Lake, and Oceana Counties. COVE has been in operation on the west shore since 1979. Their mission is to provide shelter, protection and advocacy to victims of domestic and sexual violence and/or homelessness and to educate the community about the root causes of violence. COVE is the only organization providing such services in the three-county area.
The goal of COVE’s capital campaign is to raise the funds necessary to build a new facility in Ludington that would replace the current 110-year old house that serves as the COVE shelter as well as a modular office building located one mile from the shelter. A new energy efficient, secure environment for victims and staff will ensure that COVE can continue its mission for decades to come.
