There is no charge to the school or to customers.
“A vital part of Hills Bank’s mission is to give back to our community,” said Dwight O. Seegmiller, President and CEO, Hills Bank. “This program allows our customers to help simply by swiping their Hills Bank debit card. The more they use their card, the more our community schools benefit.”
