Prevail Bank encourages the Wisconsin Rapids community to donate to the Park Place Adult Day Services organization in Wisconsin Rapids this holiday season; Prevail will match those donations up to $1,000. Monetary donations can be dropped off at the Prevail Bank - Wisconsin Rapids branch at 1601 Lincoln Street from November 21 - December 12, 2022.
"This agency provides a safe environment, with trained professionals and compassionate staff, who help dependent adults maintain their maximum level of independence and function, while promoting socialization and mental stimulation," said Taylor Doescher, Prevail Bank's Branch Manager. "We chose this organization to help those who live there, as well as their caregivers."
Anyone can contribute; a person does not need to be a bank customer to participate.
Prevail Bank's other branches are collecting monetary donations as well, but for a nonprofit within their own community. The Prevail Bank Baraboo branch chose the Sauk County Children's Giving Tree --- Marshfield chose the Personal Development Center (PDC), a domestic abuse shelter --- Medford, the Medford Area Public Schools CARES model that provides mental health and social-emotional counseling free of charge --- Owen, the Owen- Withee Food Pantry. [Worthy of note: The Owen- Withee Lions Club will also match the donations Prevail Bank collects, up to $1,000, for the benefit of the pantry.] --- The Phillips branch choose the Health Alliance of Price County --- Stevens Point, United Way of Portage County --- Wausau, The Hager House, a home for single mothers in crisis --- Wisconsin Rapids chose Park Place Adult Day Services and, the Eau Clair branch literally has a Giving Tree in its lobby for community members to choose a paper ornament that identifies a child's sex, age, and gift request (something practical, something fun) this holiday season. Participants are encouraged to purchase, wrap, and bring those items back to the Eau Claire branch by December 12. Gift distribution is managed confidentially by Eau Claire County. Prevail Bank is a federally chartered savings bank founded in 1934 with assets of $833 million with offices in Eau Claire, Baraboo, Marshfield, Medford, Owen, Phillips, Stevens Point, Wausau and Wisconsin Rapids.
