HOW WE SUPPORT OUR COMMUNITIES
At Peoples Bank, we continually strive to use our knowledge, talents and resources to improve the quality of life in our communities. We are committed to making a positive and meaningful difference in the neighborhoods where we work and live. Our charitable giving efforts are separated into two areas, financial contributions and volunteerism, and both are of equal importance and emphasis within our organization.
The Peoples Bank Foundation, established in 2003, awarded almost $750,000 in grants to local 501(c)(3) organizations in Peoples Bank footprint in 2020.
Peoples Bank makes donations and supports local organizations directly, such as a $30,000 donation to the Joe Burrow Hunger Relief Fund in 2020. Peoples Bank is proud to be able to support many events and organizations across its footprint including county fairs, youth sports and education programs, as well as community development organizations such as Habitat for Humanity.
Peoples Bank associates are encouraged to volunteer in their community, whether it is on a non-profit board where they are able to share their financial expertise or volunteering to coach the little league baseball or softball team. There are Peoples Bank associates with backgrounds in residential lending on affordable housing non-profits board of directors in Cincinnati and Columbus. And there are Peoples Bank associates serving as treasurers on local food banks and pantries that serve multiple states across the Peoples Bank footprint. Also, associates are encouraged to just lend a hand where needed, such as yard maintenance at a local playground.
We are extremely proud that Peoples Bank associates donated over $200,000 out of their own pockets to local area food banks since the pandemic began.
HOW WE SUPPORT OUR CLIENTS
One of our core values is Clients First. We serve a need in the community by making loans so people can own a home, purchase a car or start a business. We also hold deposits so clients have a safe place to keep their money.
We have consumer lending products such as our Dreams2Keys program, that helps borrowers in a low to moderate-income census tract or located in a Majority Minority census tract gain homeownership. We also offer a disaster relief unsecured loan for those unexpected expenses caused by a natural disaster. We offer many ways to avoid the maintenance fee on our checking and savings products. Peoples Bank is proud to have been able to assist 3,898 businesses in 2020 with their SBA Paycheck Protection Program loan, resulting in $500 million in loans authorized. We are there for all clients in our communities.
