Home Federal Bank Helps March of Dimes Fight Premature BirthsPrint Article
Eugene, OR—Premature birth is an epidemic that effects more than 500,000 babies nationwide, and Oregon accounts for around 5,200 of those premature births a year. Fortunately, the March of Dimes is fighting premature birth and infant mortality, and is a resource to thousands families before, during and after birth.
Home Federal Bank supports the March of Dimes’ mission to improve infant health and support moms-to-be through research and local programs, and understands just how important donations are to their success.
This is why today, Friday October 12th at 9 a.m., Home Federal Bank will present a sponsorship check of $2,500 to the March of Dimes at its downtown branch. Dorinda Dawes, Eugene Coburg Road Branch Manager, will donate the gift. Dawes has been walking for the March of Dimes for more than 40 years and was appointed 2013 Chair of the Lane County March of Dimes earlier this year.
Dawes, along with her fellow Home Federal Bank colleagues, is committed to supporting the invaluable work organizations like the March of Dimes do.
“This is my way of showing thanks for being blessed with healthy babies and an opportunity to do more for those who need support,” said Dawes.
