Bank of Salem typically hosts several programs and donates to numerous local organizations throughout the year, but all of that was halted due to Covid. As the end of 2020 drew near, Bank of Salem Marketing Director, Mary Harris, knew that our community needed us now more than ever. Mike Falco, CEO, agreed that the pandemic created a hardship for so many, including our local non-profit organizations. It became the banks goal to give back to those that give so much to our community.

We wanted to get our staff involved, so each employees was each given the opportunity to choose up to three local non-profit organizations in which they would like to donate to. In turn, Bank of Salem was able to donated ,000 to 24 local non-profit organizations in our area. Organizations include Agape Food Room, CASA, County Line Mason Lodge, Fulton County Fair Association, Fulton County Hospital Foundation, Fulton County Imagination Library, Fulton County Recreational Complex, Fulton County Single Parent Scholarship, Fulton County 4H, Fulton County Master Gardeners, Fulton County Senior Centers, Mammoth Spring Backpack Program, New Viola Lodge, Salem Backpack Program, Dr. Michael and Barbara Moody Scholarship, Salem VFW Post #9777, Spring River Lions Club, Stop the Cycle Spay/Neuter Assistance Group, Viola Backpack Program, Viola School International Scholarship, Veterans Support Association, Friends of Old Main, Ozarka College Foundation, Salem Chamber of Commerce.
