Peoples Bank announces 'Pigs in Paradise' campaign

The campaign was launched on August 1, 2019, and encourages ideas of both saving and giving back. A total of 200 piggy banks were hidden within one mile of a Peoples Bank branch. This includes branches in Whatcom, Skagit, Snohomish, Chelan/Douglas and Island counties. Each piggy bank contains $30 in cash. The winner keeps half and donates the remaining half. Anyone who shares how they paid it forward with kindness, regardless of if they found a piggy bank, will be entered in a drawing to win $2,500. To be entered you must share your story on the Peoples Bank Facebook or Instagram; @peoplesbankwa, or in person at any branch. In addition, those who enter the drawing at a branch and complete an entry form will get there shot at a separate bonus prize of $400. Half of the bonus prize is earmarked for a donation to a non-profit of the winner’s choice. “These piggy banks serve as a reminder of the importance of saving and planning for your financial future,” said Andy Pohlman, chief retail banking officer at Peoples Bank. “The ‘Pigs in Paradise’ campaign is a fun way for us to give back to the communities where we live and work.” Winners of the campaign will be announced on September 3, 2019.
