Peoples Bank & Trust, in partnership with the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago, is helping two local school districts with remote learning challenges. Peoples Bank & Trust has provided $5,000 each to North Greene and Waverly’s school districts to meet the challenges of COVID-19’s remote learning costs.

President & CEO of People’s John Gardner says it was a way for the bank to contribute to the districts to reduce the costs to students, teachers, and district support staff to help provide for the necessary operational changes required due to the pandemic.

Peoples Bank & Trust is a locally owned and managed, independent community bank with ten offices located in Charleston, Altamont, Tower Hill, Pana, Taylorville, Morrisonville, Springfield, Waverly, Palmyra and White Hall with corporate offices located in Pana. People’s also donated to 5 other school districts in their service territory as a part of the initiative.
