Bank Five Nine has donated $10,000 to the Potawatomi Area Council-Boy Scouts of America to purchase 1,000+ fishing poles for local scouts. The poles are given to new scouts as they join the organization’s character-building program. The program focuses on servant leadership, outdoor adventures, and so much more.
“We are pleased to support scouting and what it stands for with our contribution. As a local community bank these are important investments in our citizens of the future.” said Tim Schneider, Bank Five Nine CEO and president.
The Potawatomi Area Council’s goal is to inspire youth in the Waukesha area to reach greater heights. They help youth from ages 5–20 achieve self-confidence, integrity, and ethical awareness while improving their personal fitness and skills. Out of 250 BSA Councils in the U.S., the Potawatomi Council ranks 3rd in the country for regional participation.
Craig Schiefelbein, president of the Potawatomi Area Council said, “Bank Five Nine is a quintessential community bank. We feel that America needs scouting like never before, so Bank Five Nine’s help is so much appreciated.”
