  1. Community Responds to Just Food Appeal With 30,000 in Challenge Grants


    If Just Food can raise $30,000 by September 30th, they will receive an additional 30,000 from two challenge grants, $25,000 from an anonymous community member and $5,000 from Peoples Bank. The matching grants are meant to get the local organization out of the hole created by its former director, Jeremy Farmer, and continue its mission to help those in need in Douglas County.

    The Just Food Board Members previously contributed a collective $10,450, and the Crowdrise fundraiser has collected a total of $8,515. We are calling on community support to help to help us take advantage of the entirety of the $30,000 in matching grants.

    In August 2015 alone, Just Food served 3,290 unique individuals. On average, Just Food has 120-200 clients walk through our doors each day. We need to make sure our doors stay open so these families can access one of the most basic needs, food.

  2. Peoples Bank Denounces Indiana Religious Freedom and Restoration Act

    Peoples Bank today issued a statement regarding recently passed legislation in Indiana.

    “We heartily reject the apparent intent and spirit of the Indiana Religious Freedom and Restoration Act. Regardless of its title, RFRA is a thinly veiled attack on basic freedoms that should be guaranteed to all Americans. Since 1871 Peoples Bank has offered our banking, mortgage and investment services to all financially qualified people regardless of race, creed, religion, gender or sexual orientation. Peoples Bank is one Indiana business that will not attempt to take advantage of this apparently discriminatory law by refusing service to any financially qualified Indiana resident. We will continue to be guided by this same open and inclusive philosophy not only in how we conduct business but in our hiring practices as well, in all Peoples Bank markets, including Indiana.

    As a family owned community bank, we respect the right of all individuals to pursue their dreams and financial goals. We’re proud to serve our Guests, including the LGBT community…in a welcoming culture of acceptance. We respect and have deep appreciation for the diversity amongst our Bankers and our Guests across America.” said Wint Winter, Jr., Peoples Bank CEO & General Counsel.

    Peoples Bank has mortgage offices in Carmel, Indiana and numerous other banking, mortgage and investment locations nationwide.
