County National Bank (CNB) recently committed to a $10,000 donation to Hope and Encouragement for Humanity (HEH). The contribution demonstrates support for the organization and its ongoing mission of bringing hope and encouragement to humanity by meeting the physical and spiritual needs of those in distressed circumstances.

Hope and Encouragement for Humanity is a non-profit organization based in Blissfield that is dedicated to changing the world through disaster relief, outreach, and community resources. HEH forms strategic partnerships with other like minded organizations and ministries and in the spirit of mutual respect and cooperation to fulfill their mission.

In 2018, the organization distributed over 150 semi-truck loads of food, water, and other supplies to those in need around the country.  As the group has grown over the last 15 years it was necessary to purchase an additional warehouse, which was possible with the help of County National Bank. HEH relies solely on donations in order to operate, and no members of the organization are paid a salary.

Chris Clarke, Vice President Commercial Loans, said, “CNB is proud to associate with Hope and Encouragement for Humanity. The work they do in Lenawee County alone is truly amazing and our financial support will help with individuals and organizations that have experienced traumatic events or situations that no one could anticipate.” County National Bank recognizes the importance of supporting nonprofits and organizations committed to serving the community, banking on building a better future for all.
