The Stephenson National Bank & Trust (SNBT) announced a program to help the DAR Boys & Girls Club and Crivitz Youth, Inc. The program, named “Hometown Giving Back,” is a new concept that provides an opportunity for people in the community to help local youth. To participate, SNBT is asking that a person or business open a Hometown checking account. Once opened, and regular deposits are made, SNBT will donate a percentage of its own money to the two local youth organizations. The details of the Hometown Giving Back program include:

■ For every dollar deposited in the Hometown Checking Account, SNBT will donate 0.25%

■ SNBT is voluntarily donating its own money to the DAR Boys & Girls Club and Crivitz Youth, Inc.

■ The account is meant to be used as a normal, everyday checking account

SNBT is not asking the community to donate their own funds; instead, it will make the contribution on everyone’s behalf. As the balance in accounts builds, so does the amount donated by the bank.

“During times like these, it’s more important than ever that we support our community in any way that we can,” said Daniel J. Peterson, SNBT president & CEO. “In this current pandemic situation, people want to help, but they may not know how. So, we thought of a unique way to make it easier for anyone wishing to make a bigger impact.”
