Hospital at Allen University Receives $100K from Palmetto Citizens Federal Credit Union

Hospital at Allen University Receives $100K from Palmetto Citizens Federal Credit Union
Posted By: Kennedy Williams on April 08, 2021

Palmetto Citizens Federal Credit Union has awarded Allen University $100,000 to support the renovation of the Good Samaritan-Waverly Hospital Restoration Project. Allen University is a UNCF-member institution.

“As a community-chartered credit union, Palmetto Citizens exists to provide more than just low-cost financial services. We also look beyond our walls to support many deserving organizations and social causes in our community, such as the Good Samaritan Waverly Hospital Restoration Project,” said Nick Wodogaza, president and CEO of Palmetto Citizens. “We are excited to continue our support of Allen University and look forward to the completion of this project and witnessing the positive impact it will have on our community for many years to come.”

The investment into Allen University will assist in renovating the Good Samaritan-Waverly Hospital.



The $11 million renovation project will house The Boeing Institute on Civility, which will serve as a permanent memorial for the Emanuel Nine, the nine individuals who tragically lost their lives on June 17, 2015, when a **** entered Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C. It will also house the Levett School of Education, the Dickerson-Green Theological Seminary, the Waverly Wall Museum Portrait Display and the Dominion Energy Palmetto African American Hall of Fame.

The newly named Palmetto Citizens Federal Credit Union Welcome Center will be the first stop for visitors as they enter the Good Samaritan-Waverly Hospital and will be a focal point of the facility upon its completion.

Allen University President Dr. Ernest McNealey has championed the University’s aspiration to demonstrate expansive service to the greater good. As such, all Palmetto Citizens staff members and officials will complete the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion training program through the Boeing Institute on Civility at the Good Samaritan-Waverly Hospital, at no charge, within the first three years of its being.
