Hopkinsville, KY – During the Planters Bank Season of Giving, 12 non-profit organizations were supported throughout Western Kentucky and Tennessee. The Planters Bank social media and in-branch giving campaign resulted in 12 local non-profit agencies receiving a total of $27,356.19.
Completing its sixth year, the Planters Bank Season of Giving is a bank tradition that has a goal of bringing awareness to each non-profit agency’s mission at the same time as fundraising for the organizations.

“As a community bank, it is our responsibility to give back to our community. The Season of Giving is a great way for our employees, our communities, and our non-profits to all come together for these great causes,” says Planters Bank CEO Elizabeth McCoy.
Before the Season of Giving kicks off, Planters Bank purchases items from local makers. Those items are then sold in each branch to support the branch’s featured non-profit, with 100% of that purchase price donated to support the non-profits.
For the 2019 Season of Giving, Planters Bank purchased Cadiz-made Barkley Hills Honey Cinna-Spice Whipped Honey, which was paired with Hopkinsville-made Continental Mills’ Krusteaz Southern Cornbread and sold for $10.00/set.
Planters Bank also purchased Louisville-made Shell-Bee’s Bourbon Smoked Garlic Sea Salt and sold for $10.00/each. Helping to spread the reach of local companies is a component of the program too. Each of the products sold in-branch can be sourced locally following the Season of Giving.
For those that are searching for the items now that the Season of Giving is complete, the Barkley Hills Honey may be purchased at local farmer’s markets, the Krusteaz products are carried in grocery stores, and the Shell-Bee’s salts & spices can be found in the Museums of Historic Hopkinsville-Christian County gift store.
Season of Giving began as a fun way to bring attention to organizations Planters Bank supports, and has grown in to a program the bank and its employees look forward to each year. Planters Bank would like to thank the community for its generosity in helping support local organizations year after year.
