WHITEHALL, Ohio, July 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Heartland BancCorp, (OTCQB: HLAN), parent company of Heartland Bank, today announced a $50,000 gift to the Whitehall Community Park YMCA. The commitment is one of the two lead gifts to the Whitehall Community Park YMCA campaign for furniture and equipment for the new YMCA.
“At Heartland, we see our role as not only being invested in Whitehall’s future, but also a long-term partner to local organizations like the YMCA,” said Scott McComb, Chairman and CEO of Heartland Bank. “This includes promoting a vibrant environment that nurtures and enables Whitehall youth and families to tap into the immense opportunities the YMCA will offer. We hope this lead gift encourages others to support Whitehall and the YMCA. We are proud to continue our rally cry - Whitehall is back!”
One hundred percent of the donation will be used to help offset initial start-up costs of the Whitehall Community Park YMCA. The new center, expected to open in late 2019, is the result of a partnership between the YMCA of Central Ohio and the City of Whitehall.
“We are immensely proud of our partnership with Heartland Bank,” stated Tony Collins, President and CEO for YMCA of Central Ohio. “Heartland’s investment helps ensure the new Whitehall location can offer a diverse mix of programs and services, particularly to the community’s youth and teens.” Heartland Bank’s corporate offices are located adjacent to the Whitehall Community Park YMCA.
The new YMCA will focus on unique youth programming as well as health and wellness initiatives for youth, adults, and families. To donate to the Whitehall Community Park YMCA, visit http://ymcacolumbus.org/give.
