She emphasized the ripple effects of such partnerships and the transformative impact they have on communities.

Park National Bank’s contribution will go towards establishing a community laundry facility, a vital resource that will alleviate the burden of laundry expenses for individuals and families in need. Through this collaboration, Park National Bank reaffirms its commitment to enhancing the quality of life for all community members, fostering belonging and support for those in need.

The Salvation Army of Fairfield County aims to raise $8 million for the total renovation costs of the Memorial Drive facility. A dedicated steering committee has been formed to work alongside the board and internal stakeholders of the Salvation Army.
