(Seymour, Ind. – June 9, 2023 ) JCBank was honored to donate $10,000 to the E5 Foundation before the Indiana University baseball game on Friday, May 12th. The E5 Foundation is a non-profit organization created by Major League Baseball player, Scott Rolen. In 1999, Scott had the vision to bring smiles to the faces of children and their families who are dealing with an illness, hardship, or other special needs. The E5 Foundation works to achieve Scott’s vision through field trips and “once in a lifetime” family weekends at Camp Emma Lou, an outdoor recreational retreat near Bloomington, Indiana.
Scott Rolen, accompanied by his family and representatives from the E5 Foundation, was present at the game to accept JCBank’s donation. “We appreciate JCBank’s generosity in supporting the E5 Foundation. Organizations such as JCBank help us to reach more children in and around Monroe County,” said Rolen.
The donation underscores the community bank’s core values, according to President and CEO Marvin Veatch. “JCBank’s leadership is guided by our core value, “H.E.A.R.T.” – an acronym for Honesty, Encouragement, Accountability, Respect, and Teamwork,” explains Veatch. “JCBank is committed to each of the communities it serves, not only to provide banking, investment and trust services, but to be an actively engaged neighbor and partner. Our goal in supporting the E5 Foundation is to aid and encourage children who are facing hardships to give them the hope and confidence they need to face each new day.”
