What is a community bank?

A community bank is locally owned and operated by people who understand the local needs of families, businesses and farmers. Community banks focus on the needs of the businesses and families where the bank holds branches and offices.

Northview Bank, Heritage Bank, Union Bank & Trust, PrinsBank, and BANKWESTare all community banks located within the state of Minnesota who have teamed up to raise money for the Children's Grief Connection.

Children's Grief Connection provides hope and healing to grieving children and their families. This organization assists families who struggle with feelings of fear, regret and disconnection. Their isolation is broken by joining with other traumatized families who are experiencing the same heartache. Together in the safe and compassionate setting of Hearts of Hope Family Grief Camps, families make deep connections that provide support and understanding. Isolation is replaced with connection.

The 2018 Leadership Academy members' goal is to provide support and connect with children, and their families, dealing with grief by raising money for the purchase of a vehicle allowing them to bring supplies to camp sessions, haul campers, and travel to various locations for presentations.

Please consider joining with your community bank to support this cause.

Donations to this campaign can be made directly to Children's Grief Connection by clicking the button below, or at any of the local community banks listed below.
