LNB Supports Newark’s Laurel House Initiative
The Lyons National Bank (LNB) is proud to support the Laurel House – a comfort care home that will offer palliative care to residents in Wayne County. Robert Schick, Jim Homburger, and Steve Hasseler presented a check to Laurel House Board Members on October 25, as part of a $15,000 pledge from LNB to assist with the costs to ready the home for care giving. Renovations to the Fair Street home, located near the Newark-Wayne Community Hospital, are now in progress.
“As a community bank, LNB feels very connected to the communities we serve,” said Robert Schick, CEO and Chairman of the Board at LNB. “The Laurel House is a strong example of individuals working together to make a difference in their community, and LNB is proud to support such a worthwhile project.”
LNB Board Director, Jim Homburger and his wife, Peg, are major supporters of the Laurel House project and have pledged a significant gift to the effort. Laurel House Board members welcome the support from businesses, organizations and individuals to help make this unique home possible. They invite individuals to learn more about the home and how they can support the project by visiting www.laurelhousecomfortcare.org.
