SNBT is here for you today, and all the brighter days to come.
See how we've been helping the community through the unprecedented COVID-19 challenges:
|Small Businesses Receive Loan Assistance: Our SNBT Business Lenders have been working around the clock to make sure that our local Small Businesses are getting the help they need and deserve through this challenging pandemic. Our lending team has worked late nights and come in for early mornings to ensure that 494 Small Business Administration (SBA) loan applications, totaling $34.4 million, were originated and funded using the Paycheck Protection Program. Through this program, we have been able to help support the jobs of 4,968 local employees.
|"Hometown Giving Back" Helps Area Youth Programs: Out of this disaster sprang a new concept - "Hometown Giving Back." SNBT is offering the entire community a way to help: simply by opening a checking account. For every dollar deposited in the Hometown Checking Account, SNBT will donate 0.25% of our own money to the DAR Boys & Girls Club and Crivitz Youth, Inc. To learn more, click here.
Food, money & non-perishables collected for local groups
In October, each SNBT office held its own collection drive. Together, they raised $3,146, which includes money that would have typically been used toward hosting the bank’s Anniversary Open house, plus employee and community members own selfless donations.

|Monetary Donations Made to St. Vincent de Paul of Republic: Mike Kolasa, SNBT Vice President and Trust Officer at our Marquette Financial Planning Office, dropped off a check to SVDP of Republic to restock the shelves of their food bank.|

Non-Profit Grant Fund Established: Non-profits throughout the region were invited to apply for a grant through a partnership between SNBT and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago. The grant provided much-needed financial support to local nonprofits whose resources are strained by the impact of the Coronavirus.
|Grill Donation to Menominee County Victim Services Unit of the Sheriff's Department: We donated a grill to this department to help feed short-handed law enforcement officers working 12 hour shifts.|
|Providing Lunch for COVID-19 Testing Site Volunteers: When we were lucky enough to have many amazing volunteers for free COVID-19 testing out in Crivitz, SNBT proudly sponsored lunch for all of the hard-working volunteers.|
|Community Bear Hunt Scavenger Hunt: To help the community feel more together while still social distancing, SNBT and EagleHerald newspaper created a window sign of our mascot Banker Bear for people display. This is an easy way for people to still interact with their neighborhood while staying physically separated.|
|Teach Children to Save: Even though schools have been closed, SNBT employees did not skip Teach Children to Save for the month of April! Our employees read aloud and created educational resources to help families teach their children about finances. Visit the Teach Children To Save Page here.|
|Bankers recorded videos for customers: Our Universal Bankers recorded videos to let customers know how much they are missed and how much we all appreciate the community standing by us.
|Supporting local restaurants: All SNBT branches have been able to support local restaurants in the community by ordering lunch for the bunch several times each week.|
|Thanking Essential Workers: SNBT has been finding unique ways to thank essential workers and to make them feel appreciated and special, including a banner in the windows at our Marinette location.|
|Staff putting out blue ribbons: Staff at SNBT has been tying blue ribbons around poles near our offices to show moral support for medical personnel.|
|Employees cut out and displayed hearts: Employees at all of our branches tested their arts and crafts skills to show the community some love and socially distanced affection.|
