The employees of People’s Bank and Trust are giving back this holiday season. This year, the bank’s “Jean Fund”, which collects money to allow employees to wear jeans on Fridays, has been donated to the Angel Tree at the Taylorville Fire Department.
Lindsay Lopian is a Consumer Banker at People’s Bank and Trust in Taylorville. She says the consensus among bank employees this year was for the money to go towards an Angel Tree in town.
Lopian says those that work at the bank want to make sure everyone has what they need during the holiday season.
The funds collected were from January through the first Friday in December. The employees collected over $500 for the fire department’s Angel Tree in 2017.
