Sandusky, Ohio (August 8, 2019) –Civista Bank announces it will be making a $5,000 donation to the Dayton Foundation for the benefit of the Greater Dayton Disaster Relief Fund and the Dayton Oregon District Tragedy Fund.

“It is in times like these that we come together in community strength and gratitude for our communities’ first responders, volunteers and many organizations that are there to support individual hardship and community tragedy,” said Civista Bank CEO and President, Dennis Shaffer.   “Civista is dedicated to making a difference in the communities we serve through financial and volunteer support,” added Shaffer.
