The Minnesota Banker’s Association (MBA) has recognized 90 Minnesota banks for their community involvement. Banks play a vital role in their communities and to honor and recognize their achievement, the MBA created the Community Champion recognition program.

HomeTown Bank is one of 90 Community Champions that have worked with hundreds of organizations in their communities this year, providing funding, volunteers, materials, supplies, and/or food for their neighbors. Recipients of the recognition range in size from small community banks to large banks with multiple branches.

In the wake of another challenging year, Minnesota bankers stepped up their efforts to give back to their communities and citizens. During the MBA’s September Community Impact Month alone, these 90 banks and 411 branches devoted more than 3,600 volunteer hours, completed hundreds of community service projects, and donated tens of thousands of dollars to charitable organizations. In total, more than 279 distinct communities in Minnesota were impacted by their efforts.
