WAUSAU — Peoples State Bank has donated $2,500 to the Boys & Girls Club of the Wausau Area, the bank announced this week.

“Peoples believes in transforming the lives of young people as they grow, mature and find their calling,” said Scott Cattanach, president and CEO of Peoples State Bank, in a news release. “It’s easy to step up and contribute when you see the vibrancy of the children served at the club.”

The donation will go toward programs that enhance academic success, healthy lifestyles and career development, as well as meals.

The Boys & Girls Club of the Wausau Area serves nearly 2,000 members directly and 5,000 others through community fairs and school district events. The Club has three sites in the Wausau area: the Caroline S. Mark site in Wausau, D.C. Everest Middle School and D.C. Everest Greenheck Fieldhouse.
