E. L. F. (Employee Love Fund)
The Farmer’s State Bank established the Employee Love Fund (E.L.F.) as a way to encourage employee participation in raising money for community needs. Money is raised through out the year with fun promotions such as “Wear jeans any day of the week for a $5 donation”, or sales of home-made soups at lunch time during the winter months. Monthly promotions are encouraged, as well as seasonally themed events. All promotions are geared to make raising money fun!
Annual events such as Relay for Life have been beneficiaries of money raised, as well as special needs that come up in the community. Donations have gone to help restock the local food bank, as well as purchase items for the NEK-CAP Christmas store. Community organizations in need are encouraged to share this need with an employee of the bank, in hopes that another great E.L.F. project can be developed.
Employees at The Farmers State Bank take great pride in the community in which they live. The E.L.F. project has been a successful way for them to give back; to a community that gives them so much.
