Baylake Bank Provides Double Benefit with Market Animal Purchase & Donations
September 15, 2010 - Baylake Bank purchased a hog from Jacob Kaczor at the Waupaca County Fair, and then donated the meat to the Weymont Food Pantry.
Baylake Bank also purchased a 239 pound pig from Brett Kasuboski, at the Waushara County Fair Livestock Auction, and then donated the meat to the Poy Sippi Food Pantry. The purpose of the Livestock Auction Project is to instill responsibility, pride of ownership, and management skills in youth, who often use the proceeds from the sale of their animals for educational purposes or to invest in additional animals.
“Donating the meat to the food pantries
made the meat purchase even more rewarding. It is gratifying to know that our
purchase not only helped the kids who worked so hard to raise and show their
animals, it also helps local families in need,” said Nikki Schroeder, Baylake
Bank Financial Center Manager.
