In a normal year, the holidays can be trying for many organizations. Though this year has compounded that feeling, this holiday spirit has brought people together to help one another. To celebrate this generosity of spirit, The Stephenson National Bank & Trust (SNBT) shared year-end contributions with a number of local non-profit organizations.
“Our communities are blessed to have an abundance of caring individuals, together they help hundreds of area residents,” said Daniel J. Peterson, SNBT president and CEO. “To assist our local non-profits with their valuable missions, we are honored to give them a token of our appreciation, and remind them that we are in this together.”
Aside from monetary donations, SNBT has been committed to volunteerism with its annual community service pledge. Each year, bank employees pledge an impressive number of volunteer hours, and the hours pledged for 2021 is no exception: 51 employees have pledged about 5,600 hours to 118 organizations.
Throughout 2020, SNBT made monetary donations totaling over $180,000 to non-profits in Marinette, Menominee, and Oconto Counties.
