Peoples State Bank announced a $2,500 donation to the Boys & Girls Club of the Wausau Area.

“Peoples believes in transforming the lives of young people as they grow, mature, and find their calling,” said Scott Cattanach, president and CEO of Peoples State Bank. “It’s easy to step up and contribute when you see the vibrancy of the children served at the Club.”

“This donation will help programs at the Boys & Girls Club for academic success, healthy lifestyles, career development, STEAM, and will help us provide meals to kids,” said Matt Jameson, CEO of the Boys & Girls Club. “Providing meals with our programming is needed because it is so important our youth have food security.”

Jameson went on to point out the importance of leading businesses in the greater Wausau area stepping up to make Wausau a great place to live. He pointed to Mark Oldenberg, the chief financial officer of Peoples, who serves on the Boys & Girls Club board of directors, and on its finance committee.

“Mark is very thorough in helping guide Club financial strategy through his board and finance committee work,” said Jameson. “He’s also a great sounding board for best practices and gives advice on anything we ask for.”

The Boys & Girls Club of the Wausau Area serves nearly 2,000 members directly and 5,000 others through community fairs and school district events. The Club has three sites in the Wausau area: the Caroline S. Mark site in Wausau, D.C. Everest Middle School, and D.C. Everest Greenheck Fieldhouse.
