This year, First Bank of Manhattan, together with the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, is again sponsoring the Angel Tree Program for local Manhattan families.  With the support of local Manhattan organizations and businesses, as well as individual community members, we are able to offer assistance to Manhattan families who may need a bit of extra cheer this holiday season.  The Angel Trees are located at the First Bank of Manhattan’s 230 S. State Street facility, as well as the 550 North Street location, from Thanksgiving weekend to December 14, 2015.  We ask that if you are willing to help this wonderful cause, please stop by either branch, take a tag that describes a child’s needs and/or wants, purchase a gift, and return the wrapped gift with the tag attached to either bank facility by December 14, 2015.  The gifts will be distributed to the families during the week before Christmas.  The Angel Tree continues to be extremely beneficial in bringing the Manhattan community together during the holiday season and throughout the year.  
Thank you in advance to all those who participate.

If you have any questions, please contact Dianne Huelsman at First Bank of Manhattan (815) 478-6058.

The 2nd Annual First Bank of Manhattan Coat Drive was a resounding success!  This year, we were able to provide new coats for 70 local residents!  In one year, our community outreach grew by 47%!   On behalf of First Bank of Manhattan, we would like to thank all of the members of the community, our bank customers, and our First Bank of Manhattan associates who took a tag and purchased a new coat for the drive.  In addition, we would like to say thank you to Wilson Creek School and the Manhattan Food Pantry for helping organize the program, and to many First Bank of Manhattan associates for helping assemble tags and prepare our displays.  Without your generous support, this endeavor would not be possible.  Through our combined efforts, we were able to help many of our fellow friends and neighbors stay warm this coming winter season.

Thank you,
Jack Kramer
