Peoples State Bank has announced a $1,000 donation to each of the Rhinelander Police, Rhinelander Fire, and Oneida County Sheriff Department. Representatives of each of the departments received a check from Peoples' Rhinelander location employees Brandon Karaba and Bob Chasteen.
"Protecting our community is the focus of these three departments," Karaba, assistant vice president, mortgage lender of Peoples State Bank, said in a press release. "It's easy to step up and contribute when you see how important their mission is to the safety of all our Rhinelander neighbors."
"The men and women of the police, fire, and sheriff's departments all put their lives on the line every day," said Craig Lau, president of Peoples northern market. "It's important for Peoples to show our appreciation for all they do for us."
The departments will use the money for things like the Oneida County Dive Team, firefighter rescue equipment, and the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) program.
