In recognition of the 10th anniversary of Alpine Bank in Delta, the bank and staff are planning various monthly activities throughout the year.
To kick off the festivities, Alpine Bank made a $3,500 donation to the Delta County Memorial Hospital Foundation. Alpine Bank offers a robust wellness program to staff that includes reimbursement for various annual exams for medical, dental and vision, blood draw and flu shots. New in 2017, the program includes an Alpine Fit program that will incorporate fitness challenges and other health events and activities.
The donation to the foundation to support Delta County wellness is a $500 donation for each full-time employee at the Delta branch as a way of broadening the importance of wellness to the greater community.
"The Delta County Memorial Foundation is pleased to accept Alpine Bank's generous donation of $3,500 which will be applied towards the foundation's wellness program," said Lucinda Stanley, DCMF board member.
"Having completed our first 10 years in Delta, our thoughts are centered on the community and how we can give back," says Barbara Wolfe, Alpine Bank assistant vice president and branch manager. "We are honored to make the wellness program at DCMH, Alpine Bank's first donation of the new year.
A collaborative effort between the Delta County Sheriff's Office and municipal law enforcement agencies throughout Delta County has resulted in a proposal for a 1 percent sales tax increase to fund public safety. A PowerPoint presentation titled "Back the Badge" is starting to make the rounds at city/town council meetings, service club luncheons and other events.
