Western State Bank recently awarded $2,348 to the West Fargo Packer Backer Association.

In 2011, Western State Bank implemented a program to give back to the Packer Backers throughout the school year. During the 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.

"Western is excited to be active with the West Fargo Packer Backers and the West Fargo school system. We strive to give back to our community as your hometown bank." commented Brad Jacobson, president. Western has committed to continue this program for the varsity Packer football games also.

Western State Bank, a $410 million, employee-owned, community-focused bank, offers superior full-banking services, investments, real estate to personal and business customers, as well as leasing services. Western State Bank's current primary bank locations are located in the North Dakota communities of West Fargo, Fargo, Devils Lake, and Towner and Chandler, Ariz.
