Supporting Our CommunitiesParkway Bank & Trust Co. is proud to be an active and participating member in the communities of each neighborhood we serve. Parkway Bank's philosophy is to "give-back" through community sponsorships including local chambers of commerce, civic event endorsements, charitable events, community concerts, and health and fitness events. Parkway strives to support groups and individuals of all age groups and ethnic backgrounds that make up the communities we serve.
Parkway Bank supports many children's programs including Little League sponsorships, local school fund-raisers, career and curriculum enhancements through sponsored field trips, seasonal fund-raising for children's shelters and financial/educational programs with local schools.
A "Bank-At-School" program was developed in 1996 with the objective of improving the savings habits of children. Beginning with a few schools in the neighborhood, a staff member of Parkway Bank visited 4th graders and presented a curriculum of money management and the importance of saving money. Then by duplicating an actual banking environment, the children were trained as tellers and accountants to manage their own bank at school. In 1996, the ABA (American Bankers Association) Education Foundation presented Parkway Bank with an award for "Outstanding Contribution to Consumer Education."
The employees of Parkway Bank & Trust Co. have been actively involved in various programs. One such program provides food and funds for local needy families during the holiday season through the use of bake-offs, raffles and donations. Parkway employees have also participated in fundraising and donating to the local chapter of the Salvation Army. Parkway employees also contribute annually to the local United Way charities.
Parkway Bank & Trust Co. is also involved with activities for senior citizen groups in various communities. Sponsoring of health and fitness events and programs are supported through a partnership with local park districts and the National Senior Health and Fitness Association.
For over 45 years, Parkway Bank & Trust Co. has committed to the philosophy of supporting the communities it serves-reflected in the company slogan, "What a Community Bank Should Be."
