In an effort to celebrate the strong bond and relationship between local businesses, schools, and families and their hometown community bank, The Stephenson National Bank & Trust (SNBT) recognized the Power of CommUNITY Week April 18–23 during National Community Banking Month and National Financial Literacy and Capability Month.
The purpose of Power of CommUNITY Week is to highlight the longstanding tradition of local hometown community banking. We urge consumers, small business owners, farmers, and community leaders to learn more about the relationship community banks have with the communities that are not home only to our bank, but our families and our livelihoods. The role banks play in building strong communities, and the quality products and personal services we provide give our customers the support they need to succeed.
Below are the ways each SNBT Office participated in the Power of CommUNITY week:
- The Marinette Office bought lunch for the Peshtigo Fire Department and donated money to help families recovering after a fire.
- The Menominee Office donated to the Emergency Rescue Squad of Marinette.
- The Oconto Office gave $50 Gift Certificates from Brubaker’s, along with other essentials to 16 Oconto foster families.
- The Crivitz Office donated to Operation Bandshell – to help build a bandshell in the community park. They also donated to the Crivitz Middle School, in their efforts to build an outside area for children.
- The Wausaukee Office donated to the Wausaukee Rescue Squad and Wausaukee Fire Department.
- The Pembine Office donated money to help with improvements to the American Legion Park.
- The Green Bay Office brought a meal to Ashwaubenon’s Police and Fire Department. In addition, they will fill the De Pere Soccer concession stand and organize SNBT volunteers to help.
“On a regular basis, we dedicate time, effort, and resources to strengthening our community. This is our way of joining together with the rest of the Wisconsin banking industry to show the tangible ways in which we empower the communities we serve,” said Dan Peterson, SNBT president & CEO.
