CELINA – As a mutual bank, Mercer Savings Bank always has been deeply rooted in the communities it serves and, as part of that, believes that reinvesting in those communities should be a large part of its mission.
Through its giving mission, each month three employees will be selected to choose a charitable organization to receive a $200 donation. Employees are requested to choose organizations that exemplify the values of the bank as a whole.
A Park 4 All Abilities was Carmen Meyer’s choice.
“I choose to donate to A Park 4 All Abilities, which is an all-inclusive park that will be located at Coldwater Memorial Park,” Meyer said. “The committee for the park is raising money right now before they can begin to build it. The park being inclusive means that the playground will be accessible for children of all abilities, allowing all children to be able to play together with everyone involved. The playground will be fundamentally accessible for children who may have a wheelchair or even children who are at different levels of learning, both physically and mentally. I picked this charitable organization because I believe all children should have the opportunity to play and enjoy a day out with their peers.”
Holy Rosary School was Emily Casebolt’s selection.
“Holy Rosary School has always been a part of my life,” Casebolt said. “My eight years there provided me with a solid education, a strong foundation in my faith and friendships that last a lifetime. I’ve always said that Holy Rosary School is more than just a school. It’s a family, and each staff member is dedicated to the success of its students by providing the best education, the best opportunities and the best learning environment. This is my way of thanking them for everything they have done and continue to do.”
The Dan Thobe Benefit was Anthony Chappel’s selection.
“We all know that family – the one that always gives and never asks for anything back,” Chappel said. “That family is Dan and Erica Thobe of Maria Stein, Ohio. Dan and Erica recently received the news no family ever wants to hear. Dan has a Grade 3 inoperable glioma brain tumor. The Thobes are currently investigating all medical treatment options. Dan is extremely optimistic and will not let this get him down. Dan is an active community member, and he has touched the lives of many young adults through his teaching and coaching. He has a way of reaching his students and inspiring them to be better, work harder and always give back.”
