During November and December 2012, employees and clients were able to choose an ornament from the tree listing items being collected. Thanks to their generosity, the bank was able to collect $600 in cash and gift cards and more than 150 other items, including coloring and sticker books, crayons, markers, and DVDs. The donations were then distributed to children and families at the hospital by the Sam Bish Foundation. 

Commerce National Bank would like to thank all who contributed to this worthy cause, including employees, customers, and friends.  We are proud of our continued commitment to our community.
