Kudos & Congratulations
The Alliance Foundation received a check in the amount of $15,000 from JD Bank to support its initiatives. This donation is the 2017 installment to the SWLA Alliance Foundation’s SWLA on the Move 5-year campaign. The current plan of work under the SWLA on the Move Campaign is to address the critical issues facing our region: workforce development, business recruitment, business retention and expansion, regional marketing, and building a single voice for a true regional partnership.
