2023 Give a Heart Fundraiser
3/13/2023 – During the month of February, Washington Savings Bank held its annual “Give a Heart” fundraiser to raise Heart Health Awareness.
Paper hearts were sold to customers at the bank for $1 apiece for this fundraiser. After selling 539 paper hearts Washington Savings Bank rounded up the amount this year to raise a total of $1,108.
Thank you to all who contributed to this campaign! Money raised from “Give a Heart” was donated to The Andrew Gobczynski Big Heart Foundation and the Sarah Bush Lincoln Heart Center.
The Andrew Gobczynski Big Heart Foundation implemented a heart testing program for all sophomore student-athletes at Teutopolis, Effingham, and St. Anthony schools. This potentially life-saving testing will search for heart anomalies that are not detected through regular physicals. Funds raised will go towards the testing of student-athletes.
The Sarah Bush Lincoln Heart Center provides a wide range of cardiovascular services. The money raised will be used to help those who struggle to pay for costs associated with treatments.
