Community & Southern Bank, which has Marietta and Cumberland area locations, recently donated excess office equipment and administrative supplies to Marietta-based MUST Ministries. CSB’s donation of chairs, office supplies, printers, desks, filing cabinets and other office items will provide MUST with some of the necessary equipment to meet its administrative duties, as well as furthering its community initiatives.

“MUST is so grateful for corporate citizens who give back to their communities. CSB is a prime example of a community partner, donating numerous items that will help us in so many ways,” said Dr. Ike Reighard, president/CEO of MUST. “A donation like this helps MUST by allowing us to better serve others. Additionally, this donation saves our ministry money so we can in turn allocate more funds where it’s needed most. We are humbled and blessed by their generosity.” 

MUST Ministries, a nonprofit organization, has served the Marietta, Smyrna and Cherokee County communities for more than 40 years by providing food, assisting with employment opportunities and housing programs. As a volunteer-driven organization, MUST Ministries strives to address the basic needs of individuals, families and children.

“CSB recognizes and values the positive work that MUST Ministries has done and continues to do within our community,” said Mark Abernathy, CSB president. “Through such donations, our desire is to support and empower philanthropies that share our commitment to community.”
