Community Events

Cleveland State Bank Charity Squads

“Commitment to Communities” is one of the seven values that Cleveland State Bank management encourages staff to live by. Employees could never have imagined the inspirational year that would follow the assignment of designated charity squads. CSB Charity Squads consisted of six to eight employees along with a director. Each squad thoughtfully selected a charity they would commit their time and energy to for the coming year. Management encouraged, and supported, the use of work hours, as well as after hours, to volunteer. In 2018, CSB Charity Squads volunteered over 600 hours. It was no doubt an inspirational year for the bank as a whole and for all individual staff members.
