West Shore Bank Scottville car wash raises funds for Meals on Wheels.

SCOTTVILLE — Employees and their families of the West Shore Bank’s Scottville office recently raised $561.67 at a car wash. The amount was matched by the bank, for a total of $1,223.34 donated to Mason County Meals on Wheels. The car wash was held during the bank’s Acts of Kindness Week. 

Meals on Wheels is administered by Mason County Central Schools Food Service. The local chapter prepares and delivers meals to Mason County residents over the age of 60. A check was presented to Mary Ann Nielson, director of MCC Food Service, on August 12. 

“We’re looking into getting new coolers, ice packs, and heating units for the delivery vans,” said Neilson. “When we’re delivering meals, we’re on the road for about four hours and we have to have equipment to keep the different foods hot and cold.”

“Several people that came to get their car washed told me this was a fantastic thing West Shore Bank is doing and they really liked who we were donating to,” said Nancy Sanford, assistant vice president/retail banking officer at the bank’s Scottville office. “This was a great event for our community and shows the dedication our employees truly have to give back to their neighbors and community members.”

Advance Auto in Ludington donated a bucket of supplies for the event including a car wash broom, a gallon of car wash soap, detail brushes and car wash mittens. MCC Food service donated sandwiches for the car wash volunteers.
