Committed to the community, mBank recently renewed their membership in the MidMichigan Health Foundation Development Council’s Business Honor Roll. mBank’s JoAnn Dehring, Barb Fox and Anne Marie Smith were on hand to present a check for $750 to MidMichigan Health Foundation Development Director Ann Diamond and the Development Council’s Business Relations Chair, Nancy Montie.

The Business Honor Roll dates back to 1994 when the Development Council established the giving club for area businesses to support the Medical Center. Although mBank is somewhat new to the community, they continued the history of giving from First Federal. “We are very pleased to have mBank continue with the long standing support of the bank they acquired in 2018,” said Diamond, “They have a record of philanthropy dating back to the inception of the Business Honor Roll in 1994.”

Over the years, mBank has supported excellent patient care and advanced technology at MidMichigan Medical Center – Alpena in the amount totaling $46,000. mBank Vice President–Senior District Manager, JoAnn Dehring indicated, “We are certainly proud of our partnership with MidMichigan Health Foundation, supporting healthy lifestyles and great patient care in our community.” Smith added, “We are always happy to be involved in the communities we serve. I’m pleased mBank is a part of MidMichigan Health’s efforts in Alpena and the surrounding areas.”

The Business Honor Roll membership also represents sponsorship of the annual Aliferis Race. Fox has been the Aliferis Bike Race organizer since the beginning of the bike race and looks forward to another great event on September 5 this year. “We are already in the planning stages and I truly enjoy assisting with the race. I am proud that mBank offers their support to this family friendly event.”

Diamond expressed the gratitude of the MidMichigan Health Foundation, “We again thank mBank for supporting the Aliferis Race and MidMichigan Health. These funds and our partnerships are so very important in assisting with excellent patient care in northeast Michigan.”
