Prevail Bank donated $1,000 to the People Helping People organization, a nonprofit whose mission is to strengthen the community by giving direct help to low-income families and disadvantaged job seekers.

“Prevail Bank’s donation could not have arrived at a better time,” said Reverend Bill Harris, founder of the faith-based, non-profit charity. “These funds will allow us to focus on our mission to form relationships between people who have needs and those who have the time, talent, and gifts to share through our five programs.”

The five programs of People Helping People are: Adopt a Family, Stomp Out Hunger, Adopt a Veteran, a School Supply Program, and a Work Ready Program.

“We really want to expand our ‘Work Ready Program’ this year or next with additional career path offerings,” said Harris. “We’re working closely with state, county, local officials, and contractors to make this happen.”

“Prevail Bank is very proud to support the People Helping People organization,” said Craig Philipp, chief commercial lender of Prevail Bank in Baraboo. “They’ve provided food to low income families and those in crisis, personal mentoring and free career training to unemployed adults, and school supplies to elementary students in need. They are a grassroots organization that truly makes a difference in the lives of those living in Wisconsin.”

Prevail Bank’s goal is to pursue what’s possible within its local communities. It is always looking for ways to give back and enhance the quality of life and success of its customers and communities. Prevail Bank donates funds to local non-profits that assist low-to-moderate income individuals, contributes and invests in local economic development, and facilitates financial literacy workshops.
