Park Bank has donated $5,000 to Access Community Health Centers as part of the financial institution’s Community Credit Card program. Each year, Park Bank identifies a local charitable cause to benefit from purchases made by holders of its Community Credit Card. Park Bank donates twenty-five cents to the selected charity each time the card is used, no matter what the purchase amount. This contribution was made today to Access Community Health Centers, a local nonprofit organization that provides affordable health and dental care to Dane County residents from locations on East Washington and South Park Street.

“Contributing the Community Card funds to Access Community Health was a natural fit. They help make our community stronger and provide invaluable services for our local community,” said Jim Hegenbarth, Park Bank’s president and chief executive officer. Hegenbarth continued, “They are building a new facility to better serve our local area and it’s right on Park Street, where the first Park Bank branch opened in 1966.” Park Bank’s history of providing support to Dane County organizations goes beyond monetary donations each year to local not-for-profit groups. Park Bank also encourages its employees to be involved in the community through tutoring at local schools, assisting the elderly, serving food at local pantries and working with Junior Achievement.

“We are very grateful to Park Bank for their commitment to strengthen our community by increasing care to people who need it,” said Access CEO Ken Loving, M.D. “Because of this support, we will be able to expand primary and preventive care as well as behavioral health, dental and pharmacy services.”
