  • May 4, 2017 - Giving Back to Benzie County Animal Control

    HONOR, Mich. – Honor Bank is celebrating its 100-year anniversary during 2017 by supporting a different local, non-profit agency each month with both volunteer hours and donations collected from Honor Bank employees and customers.

     

    “In the true spirit of local community banking, we are celebrating 100 Years of Looking Forward while Giving Back to Our Communities,” said Michael Worden, President and CEO of Honor Bank. “Honor Bank employees have selected 10 non-profit agencies located in one of our communities, and each month we will spotlight an agency by donating our time and gathering resources to help the selected agency.”

     

    Honor Bank’s May non-profit of the month is Benzie County Animal Control. The goal is to raise awareness and help the shelter find a loving home for every animal in Benzie County. Honor employees will volunteer at the shelter to help bathe, walk, and spend time with the animals. The Bank will also collect various pet supplies during the month and will display a “Pet of The Week” poster in the Honor Branch lobby as well as on social media. See their website for more information on the adoption application.

     

    “We will be accepting donations of dog and cat food, (paws and claws food upsets their stomachs, so they’ve asked that we do not donate this brand) as well as cleaning supplies such as paper towel, cat litter, air fresheners, laundry soap, and dish soap for the entire month of May,” said Alyssa Waldo, Honor Bank Assistant Branch Manager. “We are also selling candy bars for a donation of $1 or more.”

     

    Anyone who donates in May is entered into a drawing to win one of two prizes. There is also a drawing for kids. They will have four coloring pages that they can color, turn in, and the Bank will post the picture in the Honor Bank lobby and enter them into the drawing. Anyone who donates will get their name put on a “paw print” to display in the lobby. The drawings will be held on June 7. Pictures of the prizes will be posted in the lobbies.

     

    “Benzie County Animal Control not only adopts the pets out, but finds stray animals as well as lost pets,” said Waldo. “They do everything in their power to make sure the animals are well taken care of, and team up with Benzie County Animal Welfare League to ensure that any emergency surgery needed is performed. This is a wonderful cause for the welfare of all animals in Benzie county!”

     

    The animal shelter only receives $250 per month and is county run. With over 150 dogs and 120 cats per year being adopted, compared to the price of these supplies, the Bank’s support is much appreciated.

     

    “We have such a great group of employees and customers who sincerely care about our communities,” said Worden.  “It’s only natural that we honor our anniversary throughout the year by Giving Bank to Our Communities.”

  • April 27, 2017 - Giving Back to Betsie Valley District Library

    HONOR, Mich. – Honor Bank is celebrating its 100-year anniversary during 2017 by supporting a different local, non-profit agency each month with both volunteer hours and donations collected from Honor Bank employees and customers.

     

    “In the true spirit of local community banking, we will celebrate 100 Years of Looking Forward while Giving Back to Our Communities,” said Michael Worden, President and CEO of Honor Bank. “Honor Bank employees have selected 10 non-profit agencies located in one of our communities, and each month we will spotlight an agency by donating our time and gathering resources to help the selected agency.”

     

    Honor Bank’s Copemish Branch chose the Betsie Valley District Library as the non-profit organization for the month of March and called it Community Care. The goal was to reach $1,000 and collect new, hardcover children’s books. 

    Literacy was Honor Bank’s primary focus and to encourage people to donate a new children’s hardcover book, the bank created and handed out book marks that said, ‘An Investment in Knowledge Always Pays the Best Interest.’ Another focus of Honor Bank’s Community Care was to help those in the community that do not have access to a computer or Internet service. 

     

    “The Library has several computers and Internet access so with the help of the librarians, Honor Bank’s Copemish staff taught two Internet Banking workshops which gave people an opportunity to use the computers and Internet available,” said Laurie Draeger, Honor Bank Branch Manager.  “Our staff helped customers setup their Internet banking, access their accounts, maneuver within the site and answer any questions they had about online banking.”

     

    Honor Bank also participated in the Book Carnival at the Mills Community Center as guest readers at the Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat Birthday Celebration at the Betsie Valley District Library. Bank volunteers took cash donations and book donations and gave participants the opportunity to win one of two gift baskets.

     

    “In finalizing the Community Care, we are excited to announce that we exceeded our goal of $1,000 and ended up collecting $1,037.50 in cash and a total of 104 new children’s books,” said Draeger. “We presented the Betsie Valley District Library with the check and books and announced the winners of the gift baskets on Thursday, April 13. We really want to thank everyone who participated and gave to such a great cause!”

     

    “We have such a great group of employees and customers who sincerely care about our communities,” said Worden.  “It’s only natural that we honor our anniversary throughout the year by Giving Bank to Our Communities.”
