Huron Valley State Bank Supports Open Door Outreach Center With a $500 Donation
On Friday, May 15, Huron Valley State Bank donated $500 to Open Door Outreach Center to assist with providing nonperishable food and ancillary services to Oakland County families in need. A donation in this amount will feed up to 1,500 families. A big check was presented at their facilities located in Waterford.
“In a time like this when food donations are desperately needed for the community and fundraising opportunities are not as readily available, the Bank is delighted to step in and help,” said Jack Shubitowski, President and CEO of Huron Valley State Bank.
“The current crisis has created many challenges for Open Door Outreach Center from canceling of events to purchasing more food than ever to feed those hungry in our community. What you do in a crisis matters. Huron Valley State Bank stepped up to the challenge, made it possible for us to purchase food, feeding the elderly, the disabled and those impoverished. They are a community bank and about helping their community,” said Karen L. Myers, Executive Director Open Door Outreach Center.
“The community spirit is alive and well in our area and Huron Valley State Bank invested in it,” said Rik Kowall, White Lake Township Supervisor.
Open Door Outreach Center is a 501c-3 tax-exempt nonprofit organization. Their mission is to recognize the human dignity of all people and to provide emergency services of food, clothing and referral information to families in need. Open Door has two locations in Waterford. Their resale store provides funds for the outreach center, which includes clothing, odds & ends, books, consignment items, food and needed items for clients.
Huron Valley State Bank has a proud history of giving back to the community through sponsorships and donations. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, many of these programs are postponed or cancelled for an undetermined period of time. Last month, the bank supported Meals on Wheels to provide food donations for pantry bags to the seniors. This month it was direct to support to Open Door Outreach Center.
