Home State Bank Shred Day a Success for All

JEFFERSON, IA (December 9, 2022) – Home State Bank in Jefferson, Iowa was thrilled to present a check to ARC upon the success of their annual shred day held back in June.

On June 22, Home State Bank held its annual shred day. This event was open for bank customers, Jefferson, and surrounding communities. This wasn’t a typical shred day. In addition to the public having a safe and easy way to dispose of papers, Home State Bank asked for non-perishable donations for ARC, a local non-profit food pantry serving Greene County.

To make even more of an impact for ARC, Home State Bank declared they would donate $0.25 per pound of paper shredded throughout the event. The community did not disappoint with 5,100 pounds shredded in only two hours, totaling $1,275 donated by Home State Bank in addition to the items community members donated.

Bank President, Bob Allen says, “At Home State Bank, we’re always looking for ways to give back to the community. This event allowed us to do that in a fun way that supported everyone from our customers to the community.”

Home State Bank is excited to continue this tradition of shred day and giving back. The check was presented to ARC during Java and Juice on October 28th, at Home State Bank.

Founded in 1934 in Jefferson, Iowa, Home State Bank employs 49 people and serves customers in 48 states. Best known for its agricultural banking services, Home State Bank has always been focused on giving back to the community and its customers.

Founded on October 1, 1934, by Warren Garst, Home State Bank is known as an agricultural bank. Now, the bank is owned by a multi-bank holding company comprised of Warren’s grandchildren. Home State Bank currently employs 49 people, serving customers in 43 states.
