Between public donations and Prevail Bank matching up to $1,000 at each branch location where donations were collected, a total of $15,162.54 was gifted to nine local nonprofits as part of Prevail Bank’s Holiday Matching Funds Campaign in December.

The Owen branch of Prevail Bank chose the Weekend Owen-Withee (W-O-W) Kids’ Meal Program as the beneficiary of its Holiday Matching Funds Campaign. This program served children in the Oen-0Withee School District and is affiliated with the Feed My People organization. These organizations collect and distribute food for students in need to take home on the weekends when they don’t have access to school meals. A total donation of $1,590 to the W-O-W Kids’ Meal Program was made between Prevail Bank, the Owen-Withee Lion’s Club and the public.

“Prevail Bank recognizes the importance of local non-profits and the resources they provide for those less fortunate in the communities of central Wisconsin,” wrote Catherine Leifeld of Prevail Bank in a press release.

Each of Prevail Bank’s branches chose a different organization to support.

Besides W-O-W, other programs receiving funds and non-perishable gifts included the following, listed with the location and donation amount: Ronald McDonald House Charities, Marshfield, $2,500.77; Christmas is for Children, Eau Claire, $2,625 (estimated value of 75 wrapped gifts); Park Place Adult Day Services, Wisconsin Rapids, $260; United Way of Portage County, Stevens Point, $402; Catholic Charities-Wausau Community Warming Center, $2,120; Taylor County Supportive Housings, Medford, $2,099.66; Santa’s Elves Foundation, Phillips, $2,235.11; and Sauk County Children’s Giving Tree, Prevail Bank-Baraboo, $1,330.
