CNB donates funds to Hope Unlimited for infant car seats


Bonnie Tebelak, Metropolis’ Hope Unlimited director, far left, presents a new car seat to Deaudra Roddy, a recent Hope Unlimited’s Learn to Earn Program participant. The car seats were funded through a $2500 donation from City National Bank (CNB) of Metropolis. Representing CNB are Debbie Hillebrand and Maggie Rzechula.

City National Bank of Metropolis (CNB) partnered with Metropolis' Hope Unlimited to create the Safety Seat program, which will provide expectant mothers with a car seat.

The mothers will receive the car seat after the completion of Hope Unlimited's Learn to Earn Program, which helps parents or guardians create goals for growth and provides training to help them reach these goals.

Previously, car seats had to be given out sparingly, but with the $2500 donation from CNB, there should be a car seat for every expectant mother who completes the program.

Hope Unlimited is a local organization that helps families in need by providing education, training and mentoring opportunities to parents and guardians. Partnerships like the Safety Seat program allows Hope Unlimited to continue and improve the training and aid they are able to provide.

For more information about the program or Hope Unlimited, call 524-5730. The office is open from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday.

City National Bank, established in 1907, is a community bank located in Massac County.

CNB serves the surrounding areas by offering banking services to individuals, families, businesses and farmers from its two Metropolis locations. The bank has assets in excess of $380 million and is insured by the FDIC.
