On Wednesday, November 18th, Darren Larsen and Holly Brandt, two BlackRidgeBANK employees from our Baxter, MN branch, attended Riverside Elementary School’s weekly meeting that included about 30 staff members and their Principal John Clark. Riverside Elementary provides education services to some of the lower income families in the area through a milk program and a healthy snack program to promote strong bodies and minds in the young students. Some children struggle to participate in these programs due to cost. On behalf of BlackRidgeBANK, Darren presented a check for $2,000.00 to help cover the costs of these programs for those struggling families.

“Our communities are what make us strong and viable, and to be able to give back in such an impactful way makes me proud to be a member of BlackRidgeBANK!” – Holly Brandt, Credit Administration Manager for BlackRidgeBANK-Baxter
