Citizens Bank Minnesota employees were excited to help families in need this Holiday Season. Our main office in New Ulm as well as two branch locations in La Salle and Lakeville each adopted an area family. Money was donated by employees, raised through a bake sale and free-will donation luncheons, and with a bank match it made it possible to donate $3,052.00 in gifts for these families. We were able to fulfill all the needs the families had, plus more!

Citizens Bank Minnesota, Lafayette Branch, also participated in our Adopt-a-Family project.  Together with the New Ulm Jaycees and guidance from Nick Peterson, an Ag Lender in Lafayette who is involved with the Jaycee’s Christmas Food Basket Project, the Lafayette staff was able to help families in need of food for the Christmas Holiday by collecting money from employees and from fundraising.  With a matching donation from the bank, they were able to assemble 10 Christmas Food Baskets consisting of two boxes full of food, including a large ham.  The Jaycees work with the New Ulm Food shelf and families may sign up if they would like a Christmas Food Basket. The Lafayette staff distributed the baskets and enjoyed seeing the faces of grateful recipients, both young and old.

We were happy to help these families who would have had an otherwise difficult time purchasing the needed items themselves. It was also a great way to remember what the Holidays are truly all about!
