CHEMICAL BANK has been very active with the annual Winter Wishes campaign for the previous six weeks. Winter Wishes was about collecting essential items – such as soap, toilet paper, and miscellaneous hygiene products – to donate to a local nonprofit. This year, the Owosso SafeCenter, a nonprofit agency located on N. Hickory Street, was the recipient of this effort.
Gathered in the Chemical Bank branch in downtown Owosso (top) on Tuesday, Jan. 9 were (from left) Kathy Hudson, Dawn Marie Mersino, Kristi Spencer, Kim Renwick, Kate Hudson, SafeCenter Executive Director Shelly Safi, and SafeCenter board member Steve Gill, Mike Inman, and Andrea St. Clair.
The SafeCenter is a shelter for victims of domestic and sexual violence. A crisis line is available at (877) 952-7283.
