Corporate Social Responsibility
The Peoples Bank strives as a financial institution and as individuals to participate in our communities in a meaningful positive way. It’s our corporate social responsibility to make each community we serve a better place because The Peoples Bank has an office there.
Over the years, The Peoples Bank has supported several noteworthy organizations demonstrating our commitment to assist worthy causes, improve the communities we serve, and help those in need.
In 2017, The Institute of Extraordinary Banking awarded The Peoples Bank with a Money Smarts Banky Category Excellence Award for Financial Literacy Education. The award recognized the bank’s ongoing efforts to educate individuals in our community, including young people, through partnerships with area schools and Prairie Independent Living Resource Center. In addition, the bank annually hosts a First Time Homebuyer Seminar.
