WARRENSBURG — Mary Beth Harper, business banking relationship manager at U.S. Bank, presented a $3,000 check to Johnson County Economic Development Corporation President Drew Lewis in support of JCEDC’s mission.
With more than 50 volunteers and partners, JCEDC directs economic development initiatives, strives to facilitate a profitable environment for new and existing business and assists leaders in their efforts to generate local development opportunities where businesses can create and retain new jobs and investment.
“We support JCEDC and its volunteers for all their efforts to improve the economic well-being of our bank customers and their families in the Johnson County area,” Harper said. “U.S. Bank has been a financial partner in economic development for the region for more than 10 consecutive years. This foundation of support has enabled both organizations to continue to achieve mutually benefiting economic goals.”
“Economic development impacts not only opportunities to work, but all aspects of life in our region,” Lewis said. “The financial support from U.S. Bank allows JCEDC to assist and serve Johnson County communities, business and industry and individuals.”
U.S. Bank makes contributions through the U.S. Bank Foundation and Corporate Giving.
Total annual funding for both programs reached $57 million in 2018.
