TS Bank partnered with the Ann W. Wickman Child Development Center in their sixth annual mum fundraiser by purchasing $1,500 worth of mums to be delivered to clients and community members. With the help of two other local businesses and community members, the Ann W. Wickman Child Development Center doubled their sales from the previous year.

Two gallon mums from Canoyer’s Greenhouse in Griswold, were available for $22 each and colors were chosen at time of delivery and pick up on Thursday, Sept. 9. All proceeds from the sale went toward supplies and materials for the center.

“We appreciate all the help and support that we receive from TS Bank and their employees. This year TS Bank joined in our annual mum fundraiser, and bought $1500 worth of mums to hand out to their clients and community members, which we then challenged local businesses to do the same,” said Director of the Ann W. Wickman Child Development Center. “This helped us double our mum sales from last year, helping us to purchase supplies and materials for our classrooms. Thank you TS Bank for helping our child care facility by providing support and encouragement each year!”
