Celebrating Community Bank Week in Oregon

Governor Brown has officially proclaimed October 19-23, 2020 as Community Bank Week in Oregon.  The Governor bestowed this proclamation in support of the essential role Oregon’s community banks play in supporting local economies.  For more than a century, Oregon community banks have provided the local financial services and support our communities need to prosper and grow.

 

Throughout the week, Oregon Pacific Bank will be celebrating by spreading community awareness. Community banks, particularly through lending to small businesses, play a significant role in local economic development efforts, stimulating the economy to produce jobs and create new opportunities. Community banks are an integral part of Oregon’s overall economy through their community giving, dedication as good neighbors, and above all, their critical role in providing reliable financial services to Oregonians.

 

Community banks help families achieve financial stability while also providing small business lending to local businesses, keeping our community economically healthy and vibrant. Oregon Pacific Bank has thrived for more than 40 years, thanks to our loyal customers who believe in banking locally.
