FSB in the Community

E.L.F. (Employee Love Fund)
The Farmers State Bank established the Employee Love Fund (E.L.F.) as a way to encourage employee participation in raising money for community needs. Money is raised throughout the year with fun promotions such as '$5 Friday's jeans day', silent auctions or free-will luncheons and bake sales. Monthly promotions are encouraged, as well as seasonally themed events. All promotions are geared to make raising money fun!
Annual events, such as Race Against Breast Cancer and the Jackson County United Way have been beneficiaries of money raised, as well as special needs that come up in the community. Donations have gone to help restock the local food bank, as well as purchasing 'Essential Bags' and toys for the Jackson County Christmas Bureau. Community organizations are encouraged to share their needs with an employee of the Bank.
Employees at The Farmers State Bank take great pride in the community in which they live. The E.L.F. project has been a successful way for them to give back; to a community that gives them so much.
2018 E.L.F. donations totaled $440, 10 'Essential Bags' donated to the Jackson County Christmas Bureau and 10 'winter car safety bags' donated to NEKCAP.
