F&M Bank is sponsoring a downtown shopping week in support of local merchants and Wills Memorial Hospital. During the week of November 24-29, employees of F&M Bank will be making a special effort to shop downtown Washington. Bee Southern, Fievet Pharmacy, and Tena’s Fine Diamonds and Jewelry will then donate a percentage of these sales to the Wills Memorial Hospital Auxiliary. “This is a great way for us to support local businesses as well as our community hospital,” said Mary Donna Lunceford, senior vice president at F&M. “We are encouraging all of our employees, even those in Lincolnton and Martinez, to do their holiday shipping in downtown Washington.” “Wills Memorial is thrilled at the support that the local business community has shown us over the past year,” said Susan D. Pope, community relations director. “Everyone loves to shop in Washington and now we can do it and feel good about helping our hospital too!” 3p1.jpg
