Park Bank Makes Donation to Local Charity

In June 2017, Park Bank made a generous donation of $10,206 to Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin! The donation was part of Second Harvest’s $2 million capital fundraising effort that will enable the organization to provide healthier food options for individuals and families.

“Second Harvest’s mission is to end hunger via community partnerships. As a community bank, Park Bank understands the positive impact we can make right here in Dane County to help our neighbors,” said Jim Hegenbarth, Park Bank’s President/CEO.

“Our Food.Health.Hope. building campaign relied on many community partners, like Park Bank, to create an updated and expanded facility to store fresh and nutritious food,” said Dan Stein, Second Harvest president/CEO. “We are grateful to Park Bank for supporting this effort to provide fresh food to people and reduce the health consequences that result from poor diet and nutrition.”

Founded over fifty years ago in 1966, Park Bank is Madison’s longest serving community bank with nearly 180 employees and $800 million in assets. Each year, Park Bank contributes to over 50 local organizations, as well as provides hundreds of hours of employee volunteer time, as a re-investment in our communities.

Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin began working with local hunger-relief agencies in 1986. It helps end hunger in 16 southwestern Wisconsin counties through food distribution to its partner agencies, promotion of outside food assistance programs like FoodShare, and raising awareness of hunger. As southwestern Wisconsin’s largest hunger-relief charity it meets nearly one million requests for help each year.
