OCB celebrated the week with a two-week food drive, a teach children to save initiative, ONE last push to apply for the OCB scholarship, announcement of the OCB Shred Event at its Oregon location, and celebrating our partnership with WayForward Resources.
“One Community Bank is proud to play an active role in our community, after all, community is our middle name. I am proud of all the colleagues that made Power of Community Week possible and took the time out of their workday to give back to the communities we serve,” said Steve Peotter, president and CEO. “One Community Bank is thrilled to deepen our relationship with WayForward Resources, Porchlight and school districts in south central Wisconsin. We are delighted to contribute to the impact they are making.”
One Community Bank was proud to host a community food drive again this year from April 17–29 at its Adams, Grand Marsh, McFarland, Middleton, Oxford, Stoughton, Sun Prairie, and Waunakee locations. Our Oregon location ended its food drive on May 9. OCB is ecstatic to donate a total of 810 pounds of food and other requested items to our communities’ food pantries! The food drive consisted of donations from clients and colleagues.
OCB was delighted to provide financial literacy to students across the rainbow of its communities in south central Wisconsin. Our educational program was geared towards students in grades K–2. We are happy to have educated 1,112 students!
