Health & Human Services

Peoples Bank helps various local food banks and nonprofit organizations provide individuals and families with food, clothing, health care support and other life-changing resources. We also raise funds and awareness for worthy causes like medical research, anti-poverty, domestic violence prevention and much more.

Arts & Culture

Peoples Bank covers a beautiful footprint across much of Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia, as well as portions of Virginia, Washington D.C., Maryland, Vermont and Minnesota.
