Prevail Bank encourages the Stevens Point community to donate to the United Way of Portage County this holiday season; Prevail will match those donations up to $1,000. Monetary donations can be dropped off at the Prevail Bank – Stevens Point branch at 5708 Windy Drive, Suite A from November 21 – December 12, 2022. 

“United Way of Portage County has been helping our friends, families and neighbors since 1945,” said Dustin Dietel, Prevail Bank’s Branch Manager. “They are focused on providing positive change, especially for those who are disadvantaged, in the areas of education, health, and financial stability.  They are most certainly worthy of support.”

Anyone can contribute; a person does not need to be a bank customer to participate.

Prevail Bank’s other branches are collecting monetary donations as well, but for a nonprofit within their own community. The Prevail Bank Baraboo branch chose the Sauk County Children’s Giving Tree --- Marshfield chose the Personal Development Center (PDC), a domestic abuse shelter --- Medford, the Medford Area Public Schools CARES model that provides mental health and social emotional counseling free of charge --- Owen, the Owen-Withee Food Pantry. [Worthy of note: The Owen-Withee Lions Club will also match the donations Prevail Bank collects, up to $1,000, for the benefit of the pantry.] --- The Phillips branch chose the Health Alliance of Price County ---- Stevens Point, United Way of Portage County ---- Wausau, The Hagar House, a home for single mothers in crisis --- Wisconsin Rapids chose Park Place Adult Day Services. And, the Eau Claire branch literally has a Giving Tree in its lobby for community members to choose a paper ornament that identifies a child’s sex, age, and gift request (something practical, something fun) this holiday season. Participants are encouraged to purchase, wrap, and bring those items back to the Eau Claire branch by December 12. Gift distribution is managed confidentially by Eau Claire County.

Prevail Bank is a federally chartered savings bank founded in 1934 with assets of $833 million with offices in Eau Claire, Baraboo, Marshfield, Medford, Owen, Phillips, Stevens Point, Wausau and Wisconsin Rapids.
