Security Financial Bank Donates $8,000 to Area Lunch Programs
Security Financial Bank (SFB) wants area children to focus on learning - and not worrying about whether they have funds in their accounts to pay for lunch. Earlier this year, the bank started a No Negative Balances campaign in hopes of raising funds and awareness of the issue for the communities they serve. Recently, SFB donated $2,000 each to the Bloomer, Durand-Arkansaw, Eau Claire and River Falls school districts to assist in the payment of negative school lunch account balances.
In addition, tellers in each location collected funds from customers for the cause. Bloomer raised an additional $267.35, Durand $56, Eau Claire $15 and River Falls $74.83.
"We hope this helps ease the burden of families who may be facing some extra bills during the holiday season," SFB President and CEO Paul Rudersdorf commented. "We are proud to be a member of each of these communities we serve, and with that, we feel a responsibility to help those in need."
For those interested in contributing to the cause, please contact a Security Financial Bank office in your community.
