The Peoples Community Bank's Food Drive Raises in Excess of $10,000

December 27, 2012

Once again our community food drive was a great success – thanks to everyone involved in this year’s campaign which benefited the local food pantries in Arena, Barneveld, Mazomanie and Spring Green.

In total, we raised in excess of $10,000 and more than 660 pounds of food.

"It was heartening to see the amount of customer and staff support for this effort, especially given current economic conditions” said Gary Harrop, bank president.  “We sincerely thank all those who participated to make this effort a success.”

This year, we added a bonus by connecting with many new friends on Facebook.  For each new “Like” on our Facebook page this past September and October, we donated $5.00 to the food drive fund.  We received 92 new “Likes” thus increasing our contribution an additional $450.

Furthermore, we matched your cash donations up to $1,000 combined across all locations.  As an added incentive, those of you who contributed $5 or more in cash or 3 or more canned/dry goods were eligible to enter a drawing for a $100 gift card to be given at each of our five locations.

The five winners of these $100 gift cards have been selected and notified.  

Thanks again to all of you who participated in this campaign!
