“Plumas Bank has served our northeastern communities through good times and bad for over four decades, and we are committed to helping our clients and neighbors whose lives have been devastated by the Dixie Fire. Helping those in need is always a priority for Plumas Bank, and we hope our contribution will make a difference as our community begins the rebuilding process,” said Ryback.

“Recovery from the damage caused by a wildfire requires meeting the immediate needs of affected families and also developing and supporting long-term strategies for rebuilding the economies of affected communities,” remarked Marietta Núñez, Senior Vice President and Community Investment Officer at the FHLBank San Francisco. “We are pleased to be able to match the generous donation our member Plumas Bank has made to the Dixie Fire Fund.
