Stearns Bank Community Challenge raises six-figure sum

This year’s Stearns Bank Community Challenge raised more than $576,000, including a $150,000 match through St. Cloud, Minn.-based Stearns Bank N.A

The Community Challenge takes place in partnership with the Central Minnesota Community Foundation, which administers charitable funds for the local community. The funds will benefit three local charities: Catholic Charities, Salvation Army and St. Joseph food shelves.  

“The ongoing generosity of our neighbors throughout Central Minnesota is inspiring,” said Rory Bidinger, chief marketing officer of the $2.8 billion bank. “Stearns Bank is proud to be a part of this community-wide effort that continues to make a meaningful impact to feed those in need.”
