Responding to disastrous flooding and sinkholes that have devastated the city of Houghton and surrounding area, River Valley Bank is now taking donations to help area residents and businesses.
Tax-deductible donations can be made online at RiverValleyBank.com or at any of River Valley Bank’s 15 locations throughout Michigan and Wisconsin. River Valley Bank Foundation, Inc. will match the first $20,000 raised.
All donations will go to the Portage Health Foundation 2018 Houghton County Flood Relief Fund. One hundred percent of the funds will be used for humanitarian relief and recovery efforts.
Funds will be disbursed at the direction of Portage Health Foundation’s Board of Directors and with input from the Houghton County Emergency Response leadership.
“River Valley Bank is a true community bank and we are extremely involved with all the communities we serve,” said River Valley Bank President Todd Nagel. “With a branch located in the center of this disaster, we feel it is our responsibility to extend any resources we can to help our friends and neighbors affected.”
