Huntington helps with tornado reliefWritten by Mary Petrides | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Huntington Bank has stepped in to help Northwest Ohioans affected by the June tornadoes.
The bank is partnering with the Ohio treasurer through the Renew Ohio program, offering 3 percent interest rate reduction for two years on qualified loans, including some pre-existing loans. Applications are due Sept. 30 and applicants must have suffered severe damage or loss from the tornadoes.
Huntington is the largest of several banks participating in the Renew Ohio program, said Jeremy Gutierrez, Northwest Ohio business banking market manager for Huntington.
The bank sent 10 employees to All Saints Catholic Church in Rossford, Ohio, to help collect donations. It also donated 20 personal computers, 20 flatscreen monitors, 10 servers, 36 switches and 10 printers to Lake High School and police department, Gutierrez said.
“We believe it’s our obligation to help,” Gutierrez said. “We have a commitment to the community we live in, and we firmly believe that our customers are truly our neighbors.”
