HOMEBANK employees recently completed a six-month internal campaign to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The mission of St. Jude is “to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment…” No child is denied treatment based on a family’s ability to pay.

On Wednesday, Dec. 8, Caitlin Kendrick and Tom Batenhorst, co-coordinators of the Quincy-to-Peoria St. Jude Run, accepted a check for $8,269.23 from HOMEBANK management and the Bank’s St. Jude Fundraising Committee.

Ribbon Cutting for new HOMEBANK branch in Bowling Green MO

HOMEBANK, Member FDIC, broke ground for its tenth branch in Bowling Green, MO, at 1108 Business Highway 61, on Monday, June 14. Directors Byron Webb and Victoria Webb Sack, along with HOMEBANK Chief Executive Officer Joe Thomas, Community Bank President Mary Dickey and Assistant Vice President Halie Wyble turned dirt during the ceremony at the construction site.

“We are opening this physical location in Bowling Green because we believe in exceptional customer service,” said Dickey. “We have locations in Mexico, Centralia, Hannibal and O’Fallon, and customers come from the surrounding areas. We felt we needed a physical presence in the middle of those locations to best serve our current and future customers.

“We have all the electronic services offered by the mega-banks and a great mobile app, all allowing customers to bank from anywhere, but often great customer service needs to be delivered face-to-face. It’s difficult to trust your partner if you’ve never met them in person, sat in their office, and learned a little about them as a person. In all our communities, HOMEBANK branches and our employees are highly competent, friendly and welcoming to help reduce the anxiety that sometimes comes with big financial decisions.”

More information can be obtained by calling Wyble, who is working out of a temporary office in Bowling Green, at 573-324-8921.
