United Prairie Bank Honored for Community Involvement
The Minnesota Bankers Association (MBA) recently recognized twenty-one Minnesota banks for their community involvement. Banks play an important and vital role in their communities, and to honor and recognize their involvement, the MBA created the Community Champion recognition program.
United Prairie Bank is one of the twenty-one banks that worked with hundreds of organizations in their communities, providing funding, volunteers, materials, supplies, or food for their neighbors. Over 43,000 hours and 950 employees participated in a variety of volunteer events or programs.
Recipients of the recognition range in size from small community banks to large banks with multiple branches. Many of these banks reported over 50 percent of the bank’s employees volunteered on behalf of their bank for organizations such as the Rotary, Feed My Starving Children, American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, Second Harvest Heartland, Catholic Charities, Boy Scouts, Minnesota Business Venture, Junior Achievement, United Way, Habitat for Humanity, local schools, churches, or non-profits.
MBA President/CEO Joe Witt congratulated the recipients and stated “This extraordinary level of volunteer participation by Minnesota banks demonstrates their deep commitment to the communities they serve. In addition to providing the capital that helps families and local businesses thrive, the banking industry’s record of supporting local programs is second to none. The MBA is pleased to recognize these 21 banks for their commitment to making a real difference in their local communities.”
Recipients are recognized with a certificate and recognition at the MBA Bank Day at the Capitol event in St. Paul.
