As a community bank, Peoples Bank has been dedicated to transforming its communities and enhancing the lives of its individuals and families for over 120 years. Our charitable giving efforts are separated into two areas, financial contributions and volunteerism, and both are of equal importance and emphasis within our organization.

Not only does Peoples Bank provide donations and sponsorships to local organizations, but its employees donate to local food banks and food pantries through our Jeans for Hunger program, and the Peoples Bank Foundation awards grants to local non-profits and scholarships to area students.
