MCNB in Our Communities

News and Events

We love where we live!  Helping our neighbors and friends is what MCNB has always been about.  We don't plan on that changing.    

 

The Longest Day

MCNB will be sponsoring a fundraiser event in McDowell and Wyoming County for THE LONGEST DAY, a special Alzheimer's Association effort. The Executive Director of the WV Chapter is a former MCNB Summer Intern and native of Welch. Her personal passion for this cause, as evidenced in the following lines from her letter to us, has moved us to sponsor: "My grandmother was a resident of Kimball and lived with Alzheimer's for almost nine years. We were not aware of the Alzheimer's Association or its services during that time. It is my hope that we can also provide brochures and flyers in each location participating." We are confident that this event has our best interests at heart and is a great way for us to support our communities. So if you'd like, when you visit one of the participating sponsors between June 21 and July 5, you can give a dollar or two as well! And if you have a loved one living with Alzheimer's, please visit: https://www.alz.org/wv/helping_you

What is it?

A fundraiser event focused on the longest day of the year, June 21 (summer solstice) and the slogan is, “The day with the most light is the day we fight.”

What is the goal?

It is the goal of the WV Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association to make the free services provided by the Association available to everyone in WV.

What can YOU do?

Stop in a participating location and give just a dollar - or twenty one! - then you’ll be given a “Sunshine Card” to write a name on and post in the store.
