Plumas Bank, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Plumas Bancorp, recently announced that it donated $25,000 to local non-profit organizations to provide food to those in need throughout its service area. A matching COVID-19 pandemic relief grant of $10,000 from the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco (FHLB) helped make the donation possible.

“As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to create economic hardship for many, we are inspired every day by local non-profit organizations who are stepping up to support our communities.  That’s why we’ve reached out to every community that we serve and made donations to local food banks and social services organizations,” commented Andrew Ryback, Plumas Bank president and chief executive officer. He continued, “With these donations, we’re supporting the organizations that care for our most vulnerable. We’re truly all in this together, and these organizations help families who are struggling to meet basic needs.”

The bank’s $25,000 donation, which includes $10,000 in matching funds from FHLB,  supported the following 13 organizations in their COVID-19 response efforts:  Westwood Family Resource Center; Lassen Senior Services in Susanville; Community Action Network (CAN) in Quincy; Eastern Plumas Community Action Network in Portola;  Indian Valley Food Pantry in Greenville; Community Church of Loyalton; Helping Hands in Chester;  Burney Food Coop; TEACH, Inc. in Alturas;  Dignity Health Connected Living Senior Nutrition Program in Redding; the Sierra Community House – Project Mana serving Truckee, Tahoe City and Kings Beach; Meals on Wheels in Carson City, NV. and the Food Bank of Northern Nevada in Reno.

Senior Vice President and Community Investment Officer at FHLB, Marietta Núñez, stated, “We are pleased to partner with our member Plumas Bank to support vital programs and services across their footprint. The recipients Plumas Bank has chosen to support – local food banks along with senior and family service providers – are day-to-day lifelines for vulnerable individuals and families and have become more essential during this ongoing pandemic.”
