FSB raises money for the American Red Cross ‘Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami’ Fund
Employees at First State Bank of St. Charles raised hundreds of dollars for the American Red Cross ‘Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami’ Fund by making personal donations to that fund shortly after the earthquake and tsunami hit the east coast of Japan.
This 9.0-magnitude earthquake hit the East coast of Honshu Japan on Friday, March 11, 2011. The earthquake left five million households without electricity and 1 million without water. Early assessments indicated that more than 2,500 houses had collapsed completely, with 2,500 more damaged. The earthquake reached 1,300 miles of coastline.
Monies collected will go directly to helping provide relief to the areas effect by this natural disaster. American Red Cross provides shelters, food, emotional support and survival skill training for the victims of this disaster. First State Bank of St. Charles was honored to have been a part of this worthy relief effort.

Teach Children to Save Day
First State Bank was proud to participate in the National Teach Children to Save Day Program in partnership with the Federal Reserve. On April 15, 2011, First State Bank employees visited a local second-grade classroom to teach students about the importance of savings and financial responsibility.
First State Bank is proud to share in the mission of Teach Children to Save Day, which is “to raise awareness of the importance of saving, to educate students regarding savings and to help teachers recognize that personal finance content can be introduced in the elementary classroom. The partners in TCSD wish to educate all students ... with an emphasis on low-to-moderate income students."
The Teach Children to Save Day celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2011, and challenged banks to open 15,000 savings accounts for children in 2011. First State Bank recognizes the importance of saving early and was proud to help and support this initiative.
