Independent Bank of Rockford employed haved raised $2,458.17 for Haiti victims. They also have collected a room full of items that were on the Baptist Haiti Mission (BHM) request list. Gently used and laundered items were included which were approved by BHM.

Both money and items collected have been given to the Baptist Haiti Mission for distribution to the Haiti earthquake victims.

Everyone at the BHM is thankful for the donations and they greatly appreciate our efforts. They said “we are proud to call Independent Bank our bank,” said Ron Sparks.

The BHM has indicated there are short term goals and long term goals for the people in Haiti. “Both goals require donations of money and basic needs items, so please feel free to keep donations coming. They are and will be greatly appreciated by many,” said Cheryl Koster of Independent Bank.  “We will be making deliveries to the Baptist Haiti Mission periodically.” 

“Thank you to all of you!  We can all feel proud that we are a part of Independent Bank!”
