Hopkinsville, KY – During the ninth annual Planters Bank Season of Giving, Planters Bank donated $102,902.28 to 12 community organizations throughout Western Kentucky and Tennessee.
The Planters Bank Season of Giving is a bank tradition that has the goal of supporting community organizations. This year, things were done a bit differently than in past years of the community giving campaign.
During the Season of Giving this time, the bank collected items requested by the non-profit organizations and offered to match each item donation with a monetary donation for its value.
Planters Bank CEO Elizabeth McCoy says, “We selected organizations to support that we knew we could make twice the impact. We collected items in donation drives for 3 months in all of our branches. Then, we matched those donations’ monetary value with our own dollar-for-dollar donations, resulting in over $100,000 in checks to local groups.”
