First Port City Bank in Donalsonville has generously created the “In This Together” fund in honor of Donalsonville Hospital’s frontline healthcare workers’ continued fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. With a founding contribution of $1,000 by First Port City Bank, they will begin taking community contributions immediately to help grow the fund.
Nancy Jernigan, Executive Vice President/Chief Lending Officer at First Port City, said, “First Port City Bank was founded in 1974 by a group of local business people who believed that the owners of a financial institution should be made up of friends and neighbors within the community. Our community needs us more than ever and we are happy to create a way for people to give back and support the tireless efforts of healthcare workers.”
Anyone can contribute to the fund by visiting the drive-thru or lobby at 201 S. Woolfork Avenue in Donalsonville, or by mailing a donation to First Port City Bank P. O. Box 1027, Attn “In This Together Fund”. Any donation amount is welcome and will be used to sponsor meals for healthcare workers, supplement PPE costs, and continue to boost the morale of Donalsonville Hospital’s employees.
James Moody, CFO of Donalsonville Hospital said of the fund, “We are deeply grateful to First Port City for establishing the “In this Together” fund. The fight against COVID-19 is far from over and we want our employees to know they are valued and appreciated each and every day. We hope our community will continue to contribute to the fund and help us do just that.”
