On Friday, February 26th, the employees of Oconee State Bank contributed a generous gift to Athens Regional Medical Center’s Guest Houses. This was the largest one time donation of supplies The Guest Houses has ever received.
In November, The Friends of The Guest Houses was established to engage local business and longtime supporters with the needs and mission of The Guest Houses. Tim Watson, Vice President of Oconee State Bank, attended the first meeting. He, along with his fellow employees, then made a tremendous effort to gather supplies.
Tammy Gilland, Vice President of the ARHS Foundation states, “We are grateful to Oconee State Bank for being a strong Athens Regional supporter for many years. The items their employees have so generously donated to The Guest Houses will help us provide support and comfort to many families who have loved ones receiving treatment in the hospital. We thank Oconee State Bank for partnering with us to put people first at Athens Regional.”
