Range Bank donates $25,000 to Copper Country

Houghton County flood..

Community Strong is the foundation of Range Bank. The disastrous flooding that devastated the Copper Country will take significant time and resources to repair the community. Range Bank is showing their support to aid the community by donating $25,000 to the Range Bank Copper Country Relief Fund.

“The core of Range Bank are the communities we serve, and we felt it was our responsibility to extend our support to the Copper Country,” said Roxanne Daust, President and CEO of Range Bank. “We hope this donation helps alleviate some of the burden for the community.”

Range Bank hopes to double the donation through donations from the community and has set up a Copper Country Relief Fund to collect donations. Funds from the Copper Country Relief fund will go directly to the Portage Health Foundation. The Portage Health Foundation is a non-profit organization that is working with the local emergency management team to coordinate local relief efforts. Additionally, Range Bank has set up a beneficiary fund for Thatcher Markham, the victim of the Copper Country flood. All proceeds of this fund will go directly to the family of the young boy.

To donate to the Copper Country Relief Fund visit Rangebank.com and click on the ‘Donate’ button. Donations to either the Copper Country Relief Fund and Markham’s Benefit are also accepted at your nearest Range Bank location or by mailing donations to the Houghton Office at 19320 Jacker Avenue, Houghton, MI 49931.

Checks should be made payable to either the Copper Country Relief Fund or Markham’s Benefit.
