Bank of Zachary employees presented the Lane Regional Medical Center Foundation with a check for $5,000 on Dec. 18.

This was the third installment toward the bank’s three-year pledge of $15,000.

A portion of the money was raised in 2015 through various fundraisers such as allowing the employees to wear jeans or their favorite sports team attire, as well as conduct raffles for a day off, gift baskets, tickets to sporting events and other prizes.

“I am inspired by the giving attitudes our employees display towards our community,” said Preston Kennedy, Bank of Zachary president.
