ChoiceOne Bank spreads love, donates 45 computers

ChoiceOne Bank recently donated 45 computers to Love INC of Newaygo County. The computers were given to support Love INC and their commitment to helping those in the community succeed by fulfilling unmet financial needs.

Loading donated computers onto a truck are (l–r) ChoiceOne Bank AVP Network Administrator Paul Tucker, Michael McHugh of ChoiceOne Bank (SVP, accounting, sales and marketing), and Love INC volunteers Devon Dean-Dominguez and Phil Starr.

“When we received a call from Michelle at ChoiceOne Bank, offering us 20 computers, we were thrilled,” said Executive Director of Love INC Newaygo County Michele Zimmerman. “Just imagine our surprise and joy when we arrived to pick up the computers and there were more than 45 available.”

Love INC will offer families taking their financial management classes a free computer as well as offer free computers to partner churches.

“With such a large computer donation, not only will families in need benefit, but some of our partner churches will benefit as well. We can accomplish so much when we work together,” added Zimmerman.

“Knowing these computers will be given to community members taking the initiative to complete financial classes at Love INC certainly makes this donation even more meaningful,” said President and CEO of ChoiceOne Bank, Jim Bosserd. “As the local community bank, we want to do all we can to help the families in our communities succeed. In our profession, we know taking charge of your financial future is an excellent first step toward success.”
