Parkersburg, WV – United Bank is proud to partner with and support Westbrook Health Services, Inc., recently awarding the comprehensive behavioral healthcare facility with the Bank’s annual $5,000 high-impact donation. The funds will continue to help Westbrook, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, provide and expand upon its various services and programs for individuals and families in need throughout the local Mid-Ohio Valley community.

Each year, United Bank provides a high-impact donation to a local nonprofit organization who shares the Bank’s commitment to empowering historically underserved areas and people, as well as making effective changes in and bolstering the local Parkersburg community. Representatives from United Bank presented the donation at a recent Westbrook Health Services board of directors meeting, where the team was able to learn more about Westbrook’s current and future initiatives.
