Farmers Trust and Savings Bank (FTSB) recently distributed more than $15,000 in donations to area veteran organizations, as the bank and its staff show their appreciation for the men and women who have served or are currently serving in our armed forces.

The bank introduced ‘Veterans Honor Checking’ in 2009, which continues to grow as a premier checking account designed exclusively for veterans and their spouses. The special checking account not only provides financial benefits to the individual account holder, but it also helps support a veteran organization of their choice.

Upon opening a Veterans Honor Checking account, $10 is automatically donated to the veteran organization of the account holder’s choice. In addition, at each year end, the individual’s elected organization will also receive $2 for every $1,000 of average annual balance they maintain in their account.
