Peoples Bank & Trust has a new award for community service. Peoples Bank & Trust will receive a 2019 community service award which is awarded annually by the Illinois Bankers Association for three Illinois financial institutions that go above and beyond in the area of community service. CEO John Gardner says he is excited about this award.
This is the first time that Peoples Bank & Trust has won this award and Gardner says that it’s all about going out and doing things for the community.
Peoples Bank & Trust employees donated over 5,000 hours last year in community service along with over $180,000 in donations and community support to charities. The award was presented on Monday, June 24th at the IBA Annual Conference in Austin, TX.
