MARSHFIELD, WI (Submitted to OnFocus) – Prevail Bank is encouraging the Marshfield community to donate to the Ronald McDonald House (RMH). The RMH reduces the stress and financial burden for families when they must travel far from home to access medical care for their child.
Through 375+ Ronald McDonald House Programs, millions of children and their families are served each year; one of which is located in Marshfield WI. Unfortunately, because they don’t have enough sleeping rooms, 138,000 families, throughout the world, are turned away each year. Your donation can help the Ronald McDonald House expand to fulfill the needs of more sick children and their families.
Anyone in the community can drop off monetary donations to Prevail Bank in Marshfield at 810 N. Central Avenue by December 17, 2021. Prevail Bank will match all donations up to a total of $1,000.
Denise Sonnemann, Prevail Bank’s Branch Manager in Marshfield, states, “We are very excited and happy to support Holiday Giving and our local Ronald McDonald House at the same time. This organization helps families physically, economically, and emotionally during their health care journey. They provide compassionate care when it’s needed most.”
Prevail Bank is also matching all donations up to $1,000 total at its other branch locations. The beneficiaries include:
