CULLMAN, Ala. – Cullman Savings Bank (CSB) donated $1,000 to Good Samaritan Health Clinic Friday, as part of the institution’s Cullman Savings Bank Giving Back program.

CSB President John Riley explained, “We’ve got a long-standing relationship with the Good Samaritan Clinic. I served as chairman of the board, was on their board for a while, so I saw the good work they do. And now we’ve got this Giving Back program because of the current situation with this virus. A lot of people think toward small businesses and their people there, but we can’t forget the different charities in town and different things that they do, also, because a lot of people aren’t giving right now, so we can’t forget those people either, and the good work that they do.”

When the bank started the Giving Back program, its announcement read, in part, “After making many Payroll Protection Program loans and loan deferrals, the Board of Directors of Cullman Savings Bank felt it is crucial for the Bank to help stimulate the local economy. Therefore, Cullman Savings Bank is going into the community to help support local businesses.”

Good Samaritan Health Clinic Executive Director Jolanda Hutson told The Tribune, “Good Samaritan Clinic loves and appreciates its partnership with Cullman Savings Bank. Not only do they provide us with financial support, but they’re the kind of organization that loves to get behind their partners and help them in additional ways. I know Cullman Savings Bank has been our platinum sponsor for our signature concert each fall, and not only do they provide that financial backing, but they always are there to help with being a ticket outlet or providing manpower, or encouraging their employees and their customers to support the clinic, as well. We greatly appreciate and value our ongoing partnership with Cullman Savings Bank.”
