Royal Bank received an honorable mention in The Independent Community Bankers of America’s (ICBA) 2019 National Community Bank Service Awards, which celebrate the outstanding and innovative volunteer efforts of the nation’s community banks. Royal Bank was recognized for its disaster-relief efforts following torrential rains that inundated areas of Southwest Wisconsin last year.
In total, the $441 million-asset bank donated more than 210 volunteer hours and more than $422,000 through various donations, loans, and grants toward recovery efforts.
“ICBA is proud to recognize the extraordinary contributions of Royal Bank and its employees, which demonstrate the vital role community banks serve in helping local communities prosper,” said ICBA President and CEO Rebeca Romero Rainey. “Royal Bank’s dedication to community banking principles and unwavering support for its customers and communities serves as a shining example for our industry.”
