Casual for a Cause

We're all about community here at State Bank.  Why?  Because this isn't just home to us.  It's home to ALL of us.  As your local, community bank, we know when we do our part, we can make our communities better for everyone.

This is also why you'll see us wearing jeans every other Friday.  As part of this effort, we're encouraging State Bank staff to wear jeans for a small donation to select organizations.  Beyond providing banking solutions, we take pride in giving back to the communities that have helped us achieve success.

Congratulations to the following organizations who will benefit from Casual for a Cause!  Organizations were chosen by the employees in each State Bank market.

Bremer County Historical Society
BCHS is an all-volunteer organization with a mission to kindle and keep alive an interest in local history by collecting, preserving and sharing materials relating to that history.  The organization also owns/operates the local historical museum in Waverly which is in need of funds for renovations, maintenance projects, etc.

Cedar Bend Humane Society
The Cedar Bend Humane Society exists to maintain and improve the health and well-being of surrendered, lost, abandoned, neglected, and abused companion animals in Black Hawk County and surrounding areas. CBHS is passionate to place animals in lifelong, loving homes; educate on the issues of humane care; teach responsible pet ownership; and shelter the stray, neglected, and unwanted.

Helping Services for Youth & Families

They continually expand their scientific knowledge, their connections and collaborations, their partners and our global presence to unlock the science that will stop T1D. While they fight for a cure, they strive just as hard to develop therapies to help people right now.

MercyOne, New Hampton 3D Mammography Machine
Early detetection is key in providing more treatment options for patients and a better chance for survival!  The 3D Mammography exam is the only one that finds 41% more invasive cancers versus 2D mammography alone.  It also increases accurate outcomes for both recalls (49%) and biopsy (21%) compared with 2D mammography.  Alongside earlier detection and accuracy, it creates clinical efficiency by reducing recalls due to false positives by up to 40%; saving MercyOne time and money.

The Learning Center, Charles City
TLC is a community-based childcare facility.  Throughout the 18 years of operations, they have served over 1,500 children and seek to maintain affordable tuition for families who rely on their dependable hours, nutritious meals and high standard of loving care each and every day.
