---- — IOWA CITY — MidWestOne Bank is strengthening local communities with their new Onederful Giving campaign.

Each month in 2014, MidWestOne Bank is inviting community members to enter online and within all MidWestOne Bank locations for a drawing to win $250 to a charity of their choosing. Entries will be accepted for one week each month. The next chance to enter ends Thursday.

January’s winner, Megan Lehman of Iowa City, chose to donate the $250 prize to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Johnson County.

"I am so excited that Big Brothers Big Sisters was the winning entry," said Lehman. "It's such an amazing program, and volunteering with the organization has been one of the most amazing things I've ever had the opportunity to do. The Onederful giving program is a great and easy way to give back to the community. When signing up I had no idea what to expect, but I am so glad that I did.”

MidWestOne sees this campaign as away to get people involved and garner community support. “As a community bank, we believe in the communities we serve,” Amy Hospodarsky, community relations manager at MidWestOne Bank, says. “The Onederful giving campaign is a great opportunity to get the community involved in supporting the worthy work that local nonprofits do.”
