WNB Financial is pleased to announce a donation in the amount of $300 to the Wabasha Area Food Shelf. The donation was made possible from “Jeans Day” collections, where employees choose to pay $2 each Friday to wear casual jeans during the work day, with the proceeds benefiting non-profit organizations. The Wabasha Area Food Shelf provides food assistance to adults and families living in the Wabasha and Kellogg areas. Shelves are stocked with a selection of non-perishable foods, frozen meats, eggs, bread, and personal care items. March has been named “Food Shelf Month” because it’s a critical time of year after donations are down following the holiday season, yet the need still remains. WNB Financial employees understand the importance of giving back to the community they serve. In 2018, 36 employees donated 2,211 hours of service to 91 organizations. Over $377,900 was gifted to the community in the areas of education and youth programs, fine arts and culture, health and wellness, economic development, and community service.
