Peoples Bank on Thursday launched its newest campaign, “Pigs in Paradise,” to underscore the importance of both saving and giving back to the community. A total of 200 piggy banks will be hidden within one mile of each of Peoples Bank’s 23 branches, including the one in Edmonds at 111 Main St., Suite 102.
Each bank contains $30 in cash; $15 for the finder to keep and $15 to be paid forward. Anyone who shares a story of how they paid forward an act of kindness — whether they find a piggy bank or not — will be entered in a drawing to win $2,500 for their own use.
Stories must be shared on the Peoples Bank Facebook or Instagram accounts (@peoplesbankwa) or in-person at any Peoples Bank branch. Further, anyone who enters the drawing at a branch office and completes an entry form will be entered to win a separate bonus prize of $400, half of which is earmarked for donation to a nonprofit of the winner’s choice. Winners will be announced on Sept. 3, 2019.
