Countybank Honors Genetic Center Employees and Supports GGC Foundation
January 25, 2018 – In late 2015, to honor the dedication of the Greenwood Genetic Center's (GGC) 180 employees, Countybank made a five year pledge to match employee giving to the GGC Foundation, which supports the mission of the Center, up to $20,000 each year.
This week, representatives from Countybank in Greenwood were on hand at the Center's monthly employee seminar to present the third installment of their gift. David Tompkins Senior Vice President and Greenwood Market Executive for Countybank presented the GGC Foundation with a check for $20,000 and thanked the employees for their dedication and commitment to families noting their importance in the Greenwood community.
"The Countybank Foundation looks for organizations in Greenwood that are involved in important work and are also vital to the Greenwood community as a whole," said Tompkins. "We present this gift in recognition of the Genetic Center's employees for all they do for Greenwood and for their patients across the state and around the world."
Countybank also supports the Center's Race the Helix 5K events each year.
"We are grateful to Countybank for their support of our organization and for celebrating our employees who really are the heart and soul of what we do," said Dr. Steve Skinner, GGC Director.
Following the announcement, Countybank and the GGC Foundation treated employees to a dessert reception.
