Area Bank Supports Women’s Health

 During October, employees at the Markesan State Bank rallied around Waupun Memorial Hospital’s women’s health and breast care services selling pink ribbon pins and donating $5 for jeans and pink day.

            The result? Corrin Wilson (seated left) and Jane Luedke (seated right), both loan officers with  the Markesan State Bank, present Michelle Ries (seated center), director of the Agnesian HealthCare Foundation, with a $225 check to support women’s health and breast care services at the hospital. They are joined by Patti Domask (standing left), breast health coordinator, and Amy Uhrmacher (standing right), mammography technician.

            “We wanted to get involved during National Breast Health Awareness Month, and our team enjoyed conducting these various fund raisers knowing the proceeds would help support women in our community who need a variety of services,” says Luedke. “It was important for us to get behind a local organization knowing how much it benefits others within the Waupun area.”

            The Agnesian HealthCare Foundation helps to solicit funds to benefit programs and services at Waupun Memorial Hospital, St. Agnes Hospital and St. Francis Home. To learn more, call the Foundation at (920) 926-4959.
