Citizens Bank Minnesota employees donate $3,000.00 worth of gifts to 6 families in need.

Citizens Bank Minnesota employees were excited to help 6 families in need this Holiday Season. Our main office in New Ulm as well as our three branch locations in Lafayette, La Salle and Lakeville each adopted area families as well as delivered needed supplies to the Crisis Nursery. Money was donated by employees, raised through bake sales and free-will donation luncheons, and a bank match was given making it possible to donate $3,000.00 in gifts for these families.

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!

2017 Citizens For Citizens

Some of the employee team members of Citizens For Citizens.

The employees of Citizens Bank Minnesota take great pride in volunteerism and helping our neighbors within the community. We have been active in this effort for many years and through evolution and change, we are now Citizens for Citizens. By having a variety of fundraisers during the year, we will be able to donate all proceeds to several non-profits/charities in and around the communities we serve. This year they include the Southern Minnesota Crisis Nursery, NUMAS Haus, Minnesota Lions Diabetes Foundation and Relay for Life. Our Lafayette branch is donating proceeds to the Lafayette Area Ambulance, our La Salle branch is donating to the Watonwan County Backpack program, and our Lakeville branch is donating to PawPads. Our fundraisers include pot lucks, an employee silent auction, a crafters’ weekend and a 5K walk/run, among others. Our hope is to impact the lives of our neighbors in some way through these efforts.
