  • With the devastation of the tornado that hit Brookport on Sunday, Nov. 17, the Shawnee Development Council requested that Banterra Bank’s Metropolis location serve as an outlet for financial contributions for Brookport’s tornado relief efforts.
    Banterra Bank is pleased to provide this needed community service and is also making the same service available in the bank’s 30-plus locations in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Missouri.
    “Several Midwest communities suffered significant damage as a result of Sunday’s severe weather, and these communities comprise the core of Banterra’s market,” said Jeff May, President for Banterra Bank. “Similar to our efforts during the Harrisburg 2012 tornado as well as ongoing charitable contributions, it is important for Banterra to support the communities of our highly valued customers and employees.”
    In addition to serving as a contribution outlet, Banterra’s Metropolis branch will designate their current food drive efforts to Brookport’s Tornado Relief effort; the food drive program is running in all branches throughout the end of the year.
    “We knew we wanted to get involved quickly to support our neighbors in Massac County,” said Shain Lloyd, Banterra’s Banking Center Manager for Metropolis. “The food drive underway was one quick way that our Metropolis branch could do that, but I’m so glad Shawnee Development Council contacted our branch to fill the important need of a financial contributions’ outlet for this effort.”
    Shawnee Development Council is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization that serves the Illinois counties of Alexander, Hardin, Johnson, Massac, Pope, Pulaski and Union. The organization’s mission is to enable individuals, families, and communities to determine their needs and obtain the resources required to accomplish their goals of self-sufficiency and a better quality of life. Donations made at Banterra to Shawnee Development Council will go directly to Brookport’s tornado relief effort.
    Banterra Bank began as a single bank in Ridgway in July of 1975. Today, Banterra is one of the region’s largest financial institutions with $1.2 billion in assets and more than 30 locations in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Missouri.
