Our big check put some miles in this past year!
Our commitment to our community runs deeper than simply serving our citizens with banking products and services. In 2021, we were striving to lend a stronger financial hand to support local non-profit organizations who are making a difference in our communities.
In April, we contributed $25,000 to the Heartland Learning Center in Wabash, an adult education center to develop more skilled laborers in our areas. Read more about this project here.
In September, we contributed $25,000 to Love, Inc. a local food pantry and thrift store that is renovating their building to serve our neighbors even more than they are now. Learn more about this project here.
In December, we were able to support to our local park renovations! Historic Warren received $10,000 for Riverside Park and Roanoke Beautification received $20,000 for updates to the Zent Commons. We believe our communities are lovely and deserve to welcome people from near and far to enjoy in their beauty.
