Prestonsburg, Kentucky - November 15, 2023 - Peoples Bank, a leading community bank serving the Prestonsburg area, continues to make a positive impact on the lives of individuals and families within its communities. The bank's longstanding dedication to transforming the community and enhancing lives remains at the forefront of its charitable giving efforts.
Peoples Bank focuses its giving initiatives in two primary areas: financial contributions and volunteerism. Both of these pillars are of equal importance and emphasis within the organization, demonstrating a wholehearted commitment to making a difference.
Notably, Peoples Bank and its employees actively engage in local grassroots efforts to combat hunger through initiatives such as the Jeans for Hunger program. Employees donate to local food banks and food pantries, ensuring that struggling community members have access to essential meals.
Reflecting this spirit of altruism, on November 14, 2023, employees of Peoples Bank rallied together to support Soul Food, a local backpack program dedicated to providing nutritious meals to disadvantaged children on the weekends in Floyd and Johnson County. The bank's employees dedicated their time and efforts, giving regular volunteers a well-deserved break from packing meals. To culminate the day, Peoples Bank presented Soul Food with a generous donation of $8,300, showcasing the bank's unwavering commitment to the local community.
