GARY | For 20 years, Peoples Bank has provided a holiday season to remember for hundreds of Boys & Girls Clubs’ members. Each year, employees of Peoples Bank raise money through fun events to benefit boys and girls who might not, otherwise, receive presents for Christmas.

“Peoples Bank employees are very creative in raising funds for our organization,” states Megan Henning, Marketing Manager at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northwest Indiana.

Employees of the bank collect dollars by hosting football and basketball pools, casual days, and bingo. Each event is sponsored by a bank department such as the Loan Department, Marketing or Trust Department. Each dollar raised by employees is matched by the bank.

This year, $10,000 was raised by employees. What is unique about Peoples Bank giving is that in addition to a toy item, each Club member also is given a new winter coat, gloves, hats, and clothing! This year, 60 Club members were given lasting memories this holiday season through the generosity of Peoples Bank and its employees.

“We count on Peoples Bank’s generosity each year,” states Henning. “Without their support, we would have Club members who would not have a Christmas at all.”

In addition to sponsoring youth during the holidays, Peoples Bank also sponsors the Tolleston Project and encourages their employees to volunteer in the Clubs.
