Park National Bank Launches Annual Park Cares Week
Community invited to participate through Free Shred Day and Habitat for Humanity ReStore drive
CINCINNATI, Ohio – Park National Bank announces their fourth annual Park Cares Week, a time when Bank associates devote hours to community service projects with various local agencies. Last year during the third annual Park Cares Week, 100% of Park’s 90 associates completed a total of 17 service projects for local agencies – a contribution of 438 volunteer hours for the community! This year 20 projects are planned and an even greater impact is anticipated. The planned scope of the outreach made it difficult to contain in just one week, so Park Cares “Week” will run from September 19 – October 9.
Of all Park National Bank, Southwest Ohio & Northern Kentucky employees, 100 % have signed up to participate in one or more projects during Park Cares Week. This year, the agencies to be served include the Epilepsy Foundation, Tender Mercies, Clermont Senior Services, Inter Parish Ministry, Cincinnati Nature Center, A Caring Place, CASA for Clermont Kids, Habitat for Humanity, New Perceptions, Reach Out Lakota, Animal Rescue Fund, Cincinnati Therapeutic Riding and Horsemanship, Teen Challenge, the Mill Creek Watershed Council, Child Focus, and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Clermont County and West Chester/Liberty.
Affiliate President Dave Gooch is proud of the level of associate involvement in Park Cares Week. “The spirit of giving back to the communities that support us ties directly with the core values of our organization,” said Gooch. “I look forward to seeing our associates get out in full force over the next couple weeks and do some great things in our community!”
The community at large is invited to join in one Park Cares Week project. Community members can “Shred It or Share It” at an event to benefit Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore on September 19 from 9 a.m. -1 p.m. at the Park National Bank Eastgate Office, 4550 Eastgate Blvd. A shred truck will be available to securely dispose of sensitive documents and files, and the ReStore truck will be on hand to accept donations of appliances, furniture, building supplies, and more. See www.habitatcincinnati.org/restore for a full list of acceptable items. ReStore and Bank associates will be available to help unload items and get them onto the ReStore truck.
