(Warrensburg, MO) MaryBeth Harper, Business Banking Relationship Manager at U.S. Bank presented a $3,000 check to JCEDC President Drew Lewis in support of JCEDC’s mission. With over 60 volunteers and partners, Johnson County Economic Development Corporation (JCEDC) positively affects business development, placemaking, entrepreneurship, talent development, and regionalism and in doing so promotes the economic health of Johnson County, Central Missouri region, and the state of Missouri.
“We support JCEDC and its volunteers for all their efforts to improve the economic well-being of our bank customers and their families in the Johnson County area. U.S. Bank has been a financial partner in economic development for the region for more than 11 consecutive years. This foundation of support has enabled both organizations to continue to achieve mutually benefiting economic goals,” said Harper. “Economic development impacts not only opportunities to work, but all aspects of life in our region. The financial support from U.S. Bank allows JCEDC to assist and serve Johnson County communities, business and industry, and individuals.” said Lewis.
U.S. Bank contributes to the strength and health of our communities through the U.S. Bank Foundation and Corporate Giving. Total annual funding for both programs reached $60 million in 2019.
