The Bank of Elk RIver - Give Local

The Bank of Elk River has been a cornerstone in our local communities for the past 135 years.

We are the oldest bank in Sherburne County and have a long history of significantly investing resources in supporting local businesses and families. Now, more than ever, many of our neighbors are in need of food and medical assistance. The Bank of Elk River is committed to addressing this need by donating $10,000 to local food shelves and raising additional funds for our local food shelves through an internal employee campaign.
