CARLINVILLE — CNB Bank & Trust is helping make the holidays a little brighter for many charitable organizations in its communities.
In celebration of the bank’s success for 2016, CNB is empowering its employees to assist with the year-end giving campaign. Employees are playing an active role in selecting charities of their choice.
CNB was involved in several philanthropic and volunteer efforts this year, among them: sponsoring an annual food drive, hosting an annual back-to-school supply drive, providing meals for each branch community through the annual Community Appreciation celebrations, supporting local sports teams and schools, and partnering with civic organizations to enhance the communities in which CNB serves.
The 208 employees of CNB’s 13 branch locations selected 108 different charities from its communities to receive a total of $18,975 in addition to prior contributions made throughout the year.
“We are honored to be in a position this year to help so many worthy organizations,” said Shawn Davis, CNB president and chief executive officer. “We want to say thank you to our employees by supporting causes that are important to them, their families and their communities.”
CNB Bank & Trust has locations in Alton, Brighton, Carlinville, Carrollton, Clayton, Mo., Hillsboro, Jacksonville, Jerseyville, Oak Forest, Palos Heights, Pittsfield, Shipman and Taylorville.
