Western State Bank donates funds to the Packer Backers

Western State Bank recently made a $2,950 contribution to the West Fargo Packer Backer Association.

Western State Bank developed a program to give back to the Packer Backers throughout the school year. During the West Fargo High School varsity boys and girls basketball season, Western donated $2 for each West Fargo Packer point scored at regular season home games. The Packer Backers will use the donation for various school activities throughout the year.

“At Western, we take pride in giving back to our community, especially our local schools. Supporting the West Fargo Packer Backers is very important, hundreds of students benefit from the great work the Packer Backers do each year,” commented Brad Jacobson, Bank President. “As your hometown bank, we are committed to giving back to the West Fargo school system and supporting students in the community we serve.”

Western has committed to continue this program for the varsity Packer football games again in the fall. During this past football season, Western donated $1,560 to the Packer Backers.
