Change For Kids was a program created by employees of The State Bank in 2011 during a CRA meeting. The idea was to ask customers to donate the change from their checks to our local school district to aid children in need. Since that time, the program has expanded to cover schools in 12 local districts with over ,000 gift. These funds are collected through a variety of sources including employee jean days, payroll deductions, bake sales, book sales, car washes, candle sales and customer donations. Funds are given to the school districts each Fall to use at their discretion for the needs of students in our local communities.
