During the week of April 20-25, The Stephenson National Bank & Trust (SNBT) will join hundreds of banks across the state for the Power of CommUNITY campaign sponsored by Wisconsin Bankers Association. This program brings the Wisconsin banking industry together to show its collective impact and to celebrate its community commitment.

¦ Employees are making donations to provide medical masks for staff at a local nursing facility.

¦ The bank and its staff are buying lunch from local restaurants who may have lower traffic volumes due to the coronavirus limitations.

¦ Employees cut out hearts and displayed them in the windows of each bank office.

¦ Staff are honoring medical personnel by displaying blue ribbons.

¦ Bankers showed empathy and support for the community by recording videos with the theme of “We will get through this together.”

¦ As part of Teach Children to Save, bankers recorded videos reading money-related books for kids and created a portal for local teachers and families,www.snbt.com/teachchildrentosave.
