Large Business of the Year: Peoples Bank of Kankakee County

Founded in 1962, this family-owned business works with its customers the old fashioned way: engaging customers with straightforward options, integrity, and professionalism.  They have been giving back since their founding because their owner believed “doing something in return for his good fortune.  In 2021, they donated over $70,000 to our local community between their own funds and staff contributions.  In 1996 they started investing in honoring area scholars.  Since the inception, they have awarded over $264,000 in local scholarship funds to incoming freshman of Olivet Nazarene University and Kankakee Community College.  In 2021 their staff gave of their time and talent back to our community, volunteering over 800 hours combined.  Also, for the last 5 years, they have been a committed partner of the Kankakee YMCA’s splash program.
