• Prevail Bank will match donations up to $1,000

    Prevail Bank encourages the Baraboo community to donate to the Sauk County Children’s Giving Tree organization this holiday season; Prevail will match those donations up to $1,000. Monetary donations can be dropped off at the Prevail Bank – Baraboo branch at 110 Linn Street from November 21 – December 12, 2022. 

    “This organization provides a variety of items, including Christmas toys, clothing, and supplies to children and families in Sauk County,” said Kristi Anderson, Prevail Bank’s Branch Manager. “They also provide financial assistance and meals around the holidays.”

    Anyone can contribute; a person does not need to be a bank customer to participate.

    Prevail Bank’s other branches are collecting monetary donations as well, but for a nonprofit within their own community. The Prevail Bank Baraboo branch chose the Sauk County Children’s Giving Tree --- Marshfield chose the Personal Development Center (PDC), a domestic abuse shelter --- Medford, the Medford Area Public Schools CARES Model that provides mental health and social emotional counseling free of charge --- Owen, the Owen-Withee Food Pantry. [Worthy of note: The Owen-Withee Lions Club will also match the donations Prevail Bank collects, up to $1,000, for the benefit of the pantry.] --- The Phillips branch chose the Health Alliance of Price County ---- Stevens Point, United Way of Portage County ---- Wausau, The Hagar House, a home for single mothers in crisis --- Wisconsin Rapids chose Park Place Adult Day Services. And, the Eau Claire branch literally has a Giving Tree in its lobby for community members to choose a paper ornament that identifies a child’s sex, age, and gift request (something practical, something fun) this holiday season. Participants are encouraged to purchase, wrap, and bring those items back to the Eau Claire branch by December 12. Gift distribution is managed confidentially by Eau Claire County.

    Prevail Bank is a federally chartered savings bank founded in 1934 with assets of $833 million with offices in Eau Claire, Baraboo, Marshfield, Medford, Owen, Phillips, Stevens Point, Wausau and Wisconsin Rapids.
