    CINCINNATI, April 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Pro Seniors and St. Ursula Academy
 have received grants from the Otto Armleder Trust, administered by Provident
 Bank, for $100,000 and $50,000 respectively.
     Pro Seniors, a Cincinnati nonprofit organization that provides legal and
 long-term assistance for local senior citizens, will use the funds to
 implement its Health Care Consumers Rights Project.  This project is designed
 to provide senior citizens with improved access to health care, including
 Medicare.  Comprised of three components, this project will provide seniors
 with education and community-outreach programs regarding their health care
 rights, assistance and advice concerning individual health care related legal
 questions and finally, individual legal representation to appeal medical claim
 denials, coverage reductions and/or terminations.
     St. Ursula Academy will use the funds to benefit the new Margaret Unnewehr
 Schott Hall, a four story building located on the school's campus in East
 Walnut Hills.  This facility provides the school with much needed additional
 classroom space including two music rooms, eight science rooms and ten general
 rooms.
     Created in 1935, The Otto Armleder Trust was established by local
 entrepreneur Otto Armleder to provide financial assistance to a variety of
 charitable causes in the Greater Cincinnati community.  Under the stewardship
 of Provident Bank, the fund has provided more than $23 million of financing in
 the community. Previous distributions of the Otto Armleder Trust include a
 $7.9 million gift to St. Joseph's Orphanage, a $2.2 million gift to the Urban
 League of Greater Cincinnati and a $1.0 million gift to the YWCA of
 Cincinnati.
