One Community Bank recently hosted a community food drive in each of the communities it serves.
Oregon, McFarland, Stoughton, Waunakee, Sun Prairie, Middleton, Adams, Oxford and Grand Marsh were all participants in the food drive. After the week-long food drive event, One Community Bank had donated a total of 3,436 pounds of food and other requested items to community food pantries.
The food drive consisted of donations from clients and colleagues. In order to promote donations, the bank locations had a competition to see who could donate the most, in pounds, of food drive items. OCB also provided an incentive for clients to donate by entering them into a drawing to win a $25 gift card to a local business in the community. There were three winners from each community.
“One Community Bank is very proud to support our communities in any way that we can,” OCB President and CEO Steve Peotter said. “Power of ONE community week was just an additional opportunity for us to show our support and investment in the communities we serve.”
OCB hosted this event in conjunction with the Wisconsin Bankers Association’s annual Power of Community Week. This week is dedicated to showing the collective support community banks provide to businesses and their communities.
