Operation: Stop The Spread!

September is the Minnesota Bankers Association’s Community Impact Month, and Citizens Bank Minnesota is once again proud to be participating!

This year we are focusing our efforts on “Stopping the Spread” and collecting items needed in schools to protect students and staff from COVID-19. 

If you are interested in donating, the following items are needed in classrooms:

  • Adult cloth masks or face shields
  • Youth cloth masks or face shields
  • White paper towels
  • Latex gloves, size Large & X-Large
  • Disinfectant Wipes
  • Hand Sanitizer

Monetary donations will also be accepted and used to purchase needed supplies.

Donations can be dropped off September 1st – 18th at any of our Citizens locations and the items will be distributed at our area schools.

Did you know approximately 13 million American children are at risk of hunger?  Because of this, Citizens Bank Minnesota chose to collect snacks for children in need in the area for their community snack backpack programs. These snack backpack programs help ensure students in need have access to healthy meals during the weekend and return to school ready to learn.

This effort was in conjunction with the Minnesota Bankers Association’s Community Impact Month.  Across the state, 94 banks and over 458 branches will join forces in September to serve their local communities.  Citizens employees were able to raise $715, which employees used to shop for snacks to donate to four area organizations. Several boxes of snacks were donated by employees and community supporters as well! The organizations donated to include: United Way of Brown County Project Lunch Box, Watonwan County Backpack Program, Lafayette Charter School Food Backpack Program and Kenwood Trail Middle School Snack Pack Program in Lakeville.

Citizens will hold monthly collections throughout the school year, so be on the lookout for future collection dates in your area.

Launched by the Minnesota Bankers Association, the Community Impact Month creates an opportunity for banks to highlight the many volunteer opportunities available to help build stronger local communities.  Citizens and their employees were proud to be a part of this effort and we thank everyone who donated at all of our locations! #BanksBuildMN
