The Alliance Foundation received a check in the amount of $3,000 from MidSouth Bank to support its initiatives. This donation is the 2018 grant from the bank to support the Foundation’s SWLA on the Move 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.
