The Boy Scouts of America Troop 55 was the top vote getter in voting to determine which Spring Grove area nonprofit organizations will be featured each month in Merchants Bank in Spring Grove.
The Boy Scouts received 281 votes and will be the featured organization during May at Merchants Bank in Spring Grove. Merchants Bank will match up to $200 in donations made to the Boy Scouts at the Bank.
“We believe giving back to the nonprofit organizations that make our community such a unique place to live is the most fitting way to celebrate our fifth anniversary in Spring Grove,” said Teresa Fegyak, who is coordinating the event for Merchants Bank.
During April, area residents were able to place votes for their favorite nonprofit organization at the Bank and on Merchants Bank’s Facebook page. The top five organizations will be featured by the Bank each month, May through September, and will each be eligible to receive up to $200 in matching funds. The other organizations to be featured will be:
June: Bluff Country Gathering, 229 votes
July: Gundersen Tweeten Care Center, 237 votes
August: Houston County 4-H, 115 votes
September: Spring Grove Volunteer Fire Department, 114 votes
Merchants will also sponsor a celebratory event for all area nonprofit organizations in the Spring Grove lobby at 4:15 p.m. on October 5.
