Wisconsin bank hosting military donation drive

Wausau, Wis.-based Peoples State Bank is hosting a military care donation drive to support soldiers serving overseas and Wisconsin veterans in need of assistance. 

The drive is taking place at Peoples State Bank’s 10 retail locations in central, northern and southeastern Wisconsin through Veterans Day. The public can donate non-perishable food items, batteries, blankets, stamps and toiletries. Donations will be given to the Rhinelander Military Support Group, which sends them to soldiers overseas and agencies serving Wisconsin veterans. 

“Peoples is again proud to collect donations to support active military service personnel and veterans,” said President and CEO Scott Cattanach. “We often take for granted their sacrifice — but enjoy our country’s freedoms and security. Let’s remember them this Veterans Day and donate to show our thanks.” 

Army veteran Craig Lau, northern market president for the more than $1.25 billion bank, said the donations proved invaluable for him while he served in Iraq. 

“This is one small way that we can show our veterans and active military members that we appreciate everything that they do or have done for our country,” he said.
