The Bank of Missouri in Perryville, Mo.
Service Program: "Praying for Perryville"
ICBA recognized The Bank of Missouri for its recovery efforts after a powerful tornado swept through its hometown of Perryville earlier this year. Following the storm, the $1.3 billion-asset bank’s executive team quickly approved special loan packages to help storm victims rebuild. Employees hand-delivered flyers to their community for the bank’s “Rebuild-Remodel-Purchase-Replace” program that covers financing for home construction and improvement and auto loans, with the bank covering all closing costs. The bank posted articles on social media offering tips on how to protect against identity theft. Employees also set up a barbeque pit for two days and fed 300 storm victims and clean-up volunteers. More than 85 percent of the bank’s employees participated in the program, titled “#PrayingForPerryville.”
