Representatives from Countybank in Greenwood were on hand at the Greenwood Genetic Center's monthly employee seminar on Wednesday for a big announcement. The bank, which has been a supporter of GGC through the Center's Race the Helix 5K, has made a commitment, and proposed a challenge, to GGC employees.
In honor of the dedication of the 170 GGC employees, Countybank has pledged to match employee giving to the GGC Foundation, up to $20,000 each year for the next five years.
Just after the Countybank announcement, Victoria Hann, Director of Development for the Foundation, announced the results of the 2015 employee giving campaign. "We have met Countybank's challenge this year, with 52% of our employees contributing for a total of $43,183," shared Hann. "Our employees believe in the mission of the Center, evidenced by not only their daily commitment to providing the best care for our patients, but also in their financial support of the Center."
"The employees of GGC are an amazingly talented group of people, dedicated to improving the lives of those impacted by genetic disorders," said David Tompkins, Senior Vice President and Greenwood Market Executive for Countybank. "They not only give of their time, but also their hard-earned money for the betterment of the Center. Countybank is honored to be able to recognize their efforts and contribute toward their goal of providing high quality care and advanced technology for those they serve."
