NBOH promotes food drive

National Bank of Ohio, headquartered in Oak Harbor, has kicked off a “Cans 4 All” food drive campaign. NBOH wants to give back to the community by lending a helping hand to the local food bank. The theme “Feeding The Need In Our Communities; You Can Bank On It!” will be featured on their parade float at festivals in the area. The first parade will be in Oregon May 19h, followed by a parade in Port Clinton on May 25 and in Genoa May 31. They will then finish up the year at the Apple Festival Parade in Oak Harbor on October 12. The theme  is displayed on the float, in their banking offices and in other business locations in the community with large posters and bright yellow collection bags. 

The public is invited to stop by one of the displays, pick up a bag or two, fill it with non-perishable/canned food items and return it to one of the banking locations. Along the parade route bank employees will be passing out bright yellow collection bags for people to use to fill with candy from the parade, then to refill with a donation for the food bank to bring to one of the banking offices.

NBOH has been in business since 1934 and is an independently-owned provider of financial services to businesses and consumers. Currently, NBOH operates four full service offices located in Oak Harbor, Curtice, Port Clinton and Oregon, along with two loan production offices in Perrysburg and Fremont. They invite you to join them and be a part of ‘feeding the need’.
