Citizens For Citizens

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.

Relay for Life – 2013

Relay-for-Life-logo935760

Each year since 1996, the Citizens Bank Minnesota Relay for Life team has been active with fundraising efforts in Brown County in support of the American Cancer Society and the fight against cancer.  In 2012, we surpassed our goal by raising $17,304, to bring our team’s overall total effort to an amazing $139,065.85!  Through a variety of events, including lunches, acting as guest servers at area restaurants, a crafters’ retreat and donations from friends and family, the Citizens team continues to contribute to the American Cancer Society every year.

The dollars raised through Relay events help with education, prevention, treatment, and support for all cancer survivors and patients.  At our local Relay event, we celebrate all cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost and learn how each of us can do more to fight back against this dreaded disease.  The event also increases awareness of the importance of prevention, early detection, treatment and patient support.

Please join us at the Brown County Relay for Life event on Friday, July 26 at 5:00 p.m. at the Brown County Fairgrounds. Together we will create more Birthdays!
