County National Bank (CNB) has pledged $15,000 to the Hospice Heart Endowment Fund. Since opening the new Adrian Office earlier this year, giving back to the community has been one of the focal points for CNB. Anna Mortimer, Branch Officer, explained, “Hospice is such a vital entity to our community. I do not know a single person who hasn’t been positively affected by Hospice’s outreach. What a blessing they are to Lenawee and we are thankful to provide additional resources to their mission.”
Hospice of Lenawee currently serves over 130 patients per day; their services are provided in a patient’s home, facilities or the Hospice Home located in Adrian, MI. The Hospice Heart Endowment Fund provides financial support to patients and their families who struggle with the substantial costs that accrue from prolonged medical treatments.  Susan Turner, Director of Community Education & Development, explained, “When we set our goal to raise $500,000 in three years for the Hospice Heart Endowment Fund, we were confident that our community would step up to support this mission.  County National Bank’s decision to make a contribution is so important, as it will ultimately benefit those patients and their families who are either uninsured or underinsured.  We are so grateful for their support.”
In the past 25 years of serving Lenawee County, CNB has contributed to numerous organizations and causes. The staff members from the Hudson and Adrian Offices call Lenawee their home and are always looking for ways to give back to the community that has given them so much. While speaking about the significance of Hospice, Turner said, “Hospice of Lenawee provides compassionate, patient and family-centered care to the people of our community during and after the last season of life.  End-of-life care and specifically hospice is often surrounded by myths, one of which is that hospice is only for the last few days of life.  This is simply not true.  We urge people to call when they have a question and not when they are in crisis.” County National Bank is pleased to support this organization and looks forward to many years of partnership.
