The entire staff at Reliance Bank takes great pride in being involved in many community initiatives. This is often done in a variety of ways bringing fun and awareness to the many causes we support. Here is what we have been up to:
In March, 2010, the Basic Blessings Backpack Program started out providing meals on the weekends for 30 children. In 2013, that number has grown to 168! The program is run out of Reliance Bank's basement and is thriving thanks to both donations and volunteer hours from the community. To find out how you can help, contact Gretchen Moe here at the Bank.
Hunger doesn't take a break on the weekend!!
|In the fall of 2013, staff members volunteered their time to help Habitat for Humanity. The staff helped with the roofing of the house. |
|In honor of breast cancer awareness month, Reliance Bank paints pumpkins pink and offers them for sale to the public. Pumpkins are donated by Pat and Jean Bronk. All donations raised are given to the District One Cancer Center.|
Reliance Bank is involved in our community in many other ways. Each year since the bank opened, an employee has been involved in the Faribault Future leadership program. This program identifies emerging leaders to develop and broaden their knowledge of the community and inspire them to become leaders within Faribault.
The staff of Reliance Bank also supports many fundraising campaigns and is proud to be a part of community organizations such as United Way, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Ruth’s House, Exchange Club, Rotary and Sertoma.
In 2010, Reliance Bank employees began the Basic Blessings program. This program targets the basic needs of the children of our community. Donations and volunteers are always needed to keep the program running. Contact Gretchen Moe to find out how you can help.
Thanks for allowing us to help make our community a better place to live and work.
