Supporting Our Local Communities!

Food Pantry Donation - COVID-19 Relief Program Grant

We are committed to supporting our local communities now more than ever. Through our partnership with the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago, we are providing funds from the COVID-19 Relief Program Grant to the Clifton Community Food Pantry, Food From the Heart, G.O.D.s Food Pantry, Martinton Community Food Pantry, Sheldon Food Pantry, and Watseka Area Food Pantry. Food pantries provide vital resources to our communities particularly during this pandemic crisis, and we hope our grant will be able to assist many more of those in need.

Consumer Awareness...

Carefully review your bank statement each month to verify your transactions - do your part in protecting yourself against identity theft and fraud. Always remain cautious and remember that your bank will never call you and ask for information like your social security number, routing number or account number.
