PeoplesSouth Bank has donated $17,000 to Donalsonville Hospital through the Georgia HEART Rural Tax credit program for 2020. This is the second year in a row that the bank has invested in rural healthcare at Donalsonville Hospital and comes in the midst of their ninth month battling locally with the COVID-19 global pandemic.
“This year, each and every Georgia HEART gift is a boost to our heroic medical staff and employees who remain on the frontlines,” said Chuck Orrick, Donalsonville Hospital’s Administrator. “The funds raised through this program DIRECTLY impact our ability to deliver quality healthcare to our community. We truly appreciate that PeoplesSouth has chosen to honor us with this Georgia HEART donation in this historic year.”
The State of Georgia uniquely empowers its citizens and businesses to make 100% tax credit-eligible contributions to qualified rural hospitals of their choice and help enhance rural healthcare for thousands of Georgians, including those served by Donalsonville Hospital.
About their participation, Bradley Grantham, Branch Manager and Vice President of PeoplesSouth Bank said, “We are proud to benefit our community hospital through this program, especially as access to quality healthcare has taken center stage. We have always been a community bank where people are more than just a number. Investing in healthcare is investing in people. “
