Farmers Raises Over $8K for American Heart Association

CANFIELD, Ohio – Farmers National Bank and its customers contributed more than $8,000 to the local American Heart Association to fund cardiovascular research, advocate for heart-healthier communities and spread awareness of heart attacks and strokes.

Julianna Begalla, director of marketing at Farmers, spearheaded the bank’s fundraising effort. Begalla was one of six 2024 AHA Woman of Impact nominees who participated in a nine-week fundraising and heart health education drive. The AHA fundraiser also included four Teen of Impact nominees.

“Every dollar we raised in this campaign will go right back into our community to save our neighbors and help them live a longer, healthier life,” Begalla said. “I am beyond grateful to Farmers and to our customers for supporting my Woman of Impact campaign. This is truly community banking at its best, and I am proud to be even just a small part of that.”

In addition to providing a corporate sponsorship, the bank also raised more than $5,500 in February through staff donations and by selling paper hearts to customers in branches.
