Approximately 20,700 Hills Bank customers are currently earning money for their schools of choice.
“A vital part of the Hills Bank mission is to give back to our community”, said Dwight O. Seegmiller, President and CEO, Hills Bank and Trust Company. “This program allows our customers to help by simply swiping their Hills Bank debit card. The more they use their card, the more our community schools benefit.”
