AbbyBank - Peyton's Promise
AbbyBank
has joined forces with Peyton's Promise again by sponsoring the Peyton's Promise Advocacy Program. In order for Peyton to continue to educate local students on the benefits of helping our communities, eating healthy and exercising regularly, she has developed an Advocacy Program for Peyton's Promise with AbbyBank's monetary donation. This program will inspire children, 4th grade or older, to help their school fight local hunger problems.

Also, from November 1st to December 10th for every dollar donated to Peyton's Promise, Abby Bank will match a dollar up to $2,000. This money will then be used for the holiday meal program to help area families in need. Please bring your donations to any AbbyBank location.
