In late 2015, to honor the dedication of the Greenwood Genetic Center's (GGC) 170 employees, Countybank pledged to match employee giving to the GGC Foundation, which supports the mission of the Center, up to $20,000 each year, for the next five years.
This week, representatives from Countybank in Greenwood were on hand at the Center's monthly employee seminar to present the second installment of their gift. David Tompkins Senior Vice President and Greenwood Market Executive for Countybank presented the GGC Foundation with a check for $20,000 and thanked the employees for their dedication and commitment to families noting their importance in the Greenwood community.
"We look to support organizations that are vitally important to the Greenwood community," said David Tompkins. "Without a doubt, GGC is a lifeline for the families they serve. They bring recognition to Greenwood and valuable services to families around the world." Countybank also supports the Center's Race the Helix 5K events each year.
"We are grateful to Countybank for their support of our mission and for recognizing the dedication and generosity of our talented employees," said Steve Skinner, GGC Director.
Following the announcement, Countybank and the GGC Foundation treated employees to a dessert reception.
