On Wednesday, November 5, 2014, Fifth Third Bank presented a generous contribution of $2,000.00 to Little Company of Mary Hospital to help support the Healthier Evergreen Committee initiative. The Healthier Evergreen Committee was incorporated in 2003 as a collaborative venture between Little Company of Mary Hospital and community leaders within the village of Evergreen Park. The committee works to develop specific goals toward achieving a healthier population. An important goal of the committee is to care for the needy in our community.
“Little Company of Mary Hospital and the Healthier Evergreen Committee are very grateful to the bank for supporting this endeavor,” said Eileen McNichols, Manager of Health Promotions at LCMH and current president of the Healthier Evergreen Committee. The check was presented by Vernon Lam, Vice President and Branch Manager of the Evergreen Park Fifth Third Bank, and Chase Moore, Licensed Personal Banker. Sister Margaret Christina Hoban, L.C.M., Founder of the Healthier Evergreen Committee, and Eileen McNichols accepted the check on the committee’s behalf.
“Our support of this venture really speaks to the culture of Fifth Third Bank,” said Vernon Lam. “We salute the Healthier Evergreen Committee for its efforts in creating better health outcomes for area residents.”
