Union Savings Bank Completes $50,000 Gift to FHN Foundation


UNION Savings BANK presented the FHN Foundation with a $10,000 donation last week, completing a $50,000 pledge to the FHN Leonard C. Ferguson Cancer Center made five years ago.

This is the largest gift UNION Savings BANK has made to any organization, and it's in line with the bank's focus on the community. In presenting the gift, USB officers stressed that cancer touches nearly everyone's life, and that having the Cancer Center in town is an asset for our community.

USB's gift sponsors one of the Cancer Center's eight chemotherapy stations added in 2012, which make it possible for patients to receive lifesaving treatments close to home, near their support system and without a long drive. The number of treatments at the Center rises each year, averaging about 1,000.

“We are deeply appreciative of this major gift from UNION Savings BANK,” said FHN Foundation Executive Director Tonya Meyer. “Their generosity makes it possible for us to increase our capacity to offer cancer care close to home for people in our communities.”
