During the Planters Bank Season of Giving, a dozen nonprofit organizations were supported throughout western Kentucky and Tennessee, including Princeton.
The Planters Bank social media and in-branch giving campaign resulted in a donation total of $27,356.19, $1,516.80 of which went to Feeding God's Creation in Princeton from the local branch of the bank.
Completing its sixth year, the Planters Bank Season of Giving is a bank tradition that has a goal of bringing awareness to each non-profit agency's mission at the same time as fundraising for the organizations.
"As a community bank, it is our responsibility to give back to our community. The Season of Giving is a great way for our employees, our communities, and our non-profits to all come together for these great causes," Planters Bank CEO Elizabeth McCoy said.
Before the Season of Giving kicks off, Planters Bank purchases items from local makers. Those items are then sold in each branch to support the branch's featured non-profit, with 100% of that purchase price donated to support the non-profits. Throughout the Season of Giving, September through December, Planters Bank features a different non-profit each week on the bank's Facebook and Twitter. The community's engagement with those posts helps each non-profit earn even more donations.
