ATHENS—Today OVB Vice President Brian Hall officially opened the Ohio Valley Bank Loan Office in Athens with a unique ribbon-cutting event that has become a hallmark tradition of the company.

Bank officers and community leaders were on hand to cut the ribbon, made up of $20 bills attached end to end, totaling $500. Ohio Valley Bank then donated the ribbon to the Athens CASA/GAL Program, represented by Jenny Stotts, Executive Director, and Habitat for Humanity of Southeast Ohio, represented by Kenneth Oehlers, Executive Director.

The Bank’s commitment to its “Community First” mission is credited as the driver behind the support of these local charitable organizations. The Athens CASA/GAL Program provides advocacy services to local children who have experienced abuse or neglect. Since 1990, Habitat for Humanity of Southeast Ohio has empowered 62 families to achieve their dreams of home ownership and break the cycle of poverty.

The OVB Athens Loan Office, specializing in business loans and mortgages, is located at 2097 East State Street, Suite C, in Athens, and is open Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.
