United Bank Pledges $17,000 to Save Atmore YMCA
United Bank of Atmore, Ark. has announced a pledge of $17,000 to help the Atmore YMCA alleviate recent shortfalls that threatened to close the organization. United Bank’s commitment of $1,000 per month through December 2015 will allow the YMCA to continue providing recreational services to children, families and senior citizens. In addition to its financial commitment, the bank is helping the YMCA draft a grant application from the Alabama Historical Commission for capital enhancements. “Our commitment today will meet an immediate need, but it’s also reflective of United Bank’s commitment to help the YMCA find a long-term solution to its funding issues,” said Robert Jones, President and CEO of United Bank.
