For the second year, First National Bank of Baldwin County will be holding a “Your Community is Our Community” campaign during June to help The Haven.  While different in what they do, both organizations service all of Baldwin County.  “We are a community bank.  We are all animal people, with pets of our own, some having adoptedStaff at First National Bank of Baldwin CountyfromThe Haven; therefore, helping The Haven is only natural, “ says Connie Wilson,  Asst. Branch Manager at Fairhope.

All First National Bank locations (Foley, Daphne, Fairhope, Gulf Shores, Orange Beach) will be accepting monetary donations for The Haven throughout June.  Each bank branch will display a Fundraising Thermometer showing a goal of $200, with the hope that there will be a friendly competition between branches.  To kick of the promotion, most branches will have a Hot Dog Sale on June 1.  Maddie, the mascot for the...

Maddie’s Pet Rescue Project of which the Haven is the lead agency in Baldwin County, will be visiting all of the branches that day.  Throughout the month, there will be bake sales, and a pulled pork sandwich sale at some of the locations to further generate funds for The Haven.  

 

Each donor can complete a “Paw Print” card that the FNBBC staff will then display at their branch office.  The staff at First National is also suggesting that donors who have pets can bring in a photo of their pet to be attached to their “Paw Print” card.  As a further incentive, First National is providing a free checking account to any donor qualified by the bank. “We have been working together to create a no-kill community for several years and it always begins with the support from leaders in our community” stated Michael Graham Executive Director for the non-profit.  “Our happy tail stories and new programs created to sustain our progress would not be possible without generous businesses like First National Bank of Baldwin County”.

 

“This is going to be a lot of fun,” says Marcia Stabler, Sr. Vice President, Fairhope Branch Manager.  Both The Haven and the staff at First National feel that whatever is given for The Haven is more than just a donation; it’s an investment in the well-being of those who live in Baldwin County, including the 4-legged ones.
