LUDINGTON  – West Shore Bank employees donated to several charities over the summer by participating in Jean Days. Employees wore jeans on Fridays through the months of June through August by donating $5 to charity. Charities were chosen by employee suggestions from each office. Collectively, West Shore Bank employees donated $2,304 to six different charities in their market areas. 

Ludington Downtown and East offices raised $1,000 for Mason County Mutts. The mission of Mason County Mutts is to work on community-oriented projects, education and animal welfare. Donations go toward further efforts rescuing, feeding, and medical care for animals. “It was a lot of fun to be able to wear jeans during the summer season and donate the funds to a cause that so many employees care about.  I am confident that the donated funds will go toward helping out a lot of wonderful pups in the local Ludington community,” said Ludington Market Branch Manager Christine Lamb.

Scottville offices raised $510 for the Scottville Clown Band Shell. “We chose to donate to the Scottville Clown Band Shell because it brings all ages together with its free summer concerts. West Shore Bank prides itself on connecting with the community, so the mission of the Scottville Clown Band Shell is something West Shore Bank employees are passionate about,” said Retail Banking Officer Nancy Sanford. 

Manistee Parkdale and South offices raised $235 for Homeward Bound Animal Shelter. Homeward Bound is a no-kill animal shelter in Manistee County that provides daily care for between 75-130 animals. Donations help provide housing, food, medical care and clean living quarters for the animals. 

The Frankfort and Onekama offices raised $110 for the Isaac Foundation. The mission of the Isaac Foundation is to promote suicide prevention and awareness. 

The Hart office raised $239 for Bread of Life Food Pantry. “Bread of Life Food Pantry feeds thousands of children every year. They feed people all year round, which ensures that children do not go hungry when school is not in session,” said Retail Banking Officer Leah Holmes. 

The Muskegon office raised $210 for No More Sidelines. No More Sidelines is a volunteer-run organization providing special needs children ages 7 and up opportunities to play sports year-round. There are Lakeshore, Kent County and Central Michigan chapters of No More Sidelines.
