In the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan on March 11, the City of Lebanon, the Marion County Economic Development Office and the Marion County Fiscal Court created a relief fund to assist the victims of the natural disaster.

Last week, the employees of TBMK presented a donation of $755.11 to the fund. As of last Friday, $10,165.11 has been collected for the relief effort.

The 9.0-magnitude earthquake and tsunami caused 14,500 deaths and an estimated $12 billion in damage, according to The Christian Science Monitor.
