There is always something new and exciting going on around the bank and we want to make sure you’re aware of what your bank is involved in and doing in the communities we serve. This “Branching Out” extension from our website will be here for you to visit and get up to date information about bank projects, activities, sponsorships, and community events in the cities we call home.
Supporting Our Communities
The Bank was a recent sponsor at the United Way of San Joaquin 7th Annual Evening of Wine, Chocolate & Art. In 2015, the United Way grant program raised over $24,000 to support local non-profits. The local United Way community council helped raise funds to support the grants given out to 11 local non-profits in the Manteca, Lathrop, Escalon and Ripon areas.
Thank you Debbie Baglietto, Board Member and Co-Chair of United Way of San Joaquin, Lauren Falk, Lilia Romano, Nancy Loewen, and Alyssa Acosta for volunteering and supporting United Way!
The United Way is dedicated to focusing on opportunities that improve the quality of life throughout our community by partnering with and supporting programs that enhance and improve education, financial stability and healthy individuals.
Kansas has spent more than four decades as a part of the soundtrack of the lives of multiple generations of music lovers. This “garage band” from Topeka has produced eight gold albums, three sextuple-platinum albums, and one platinum live album. Their epic songs include “Carry on Wayward Son,” “Dust in the Wind” and “Point of Know Return.” Critics have hailed their blend of rock, jazz, classical and other musical forms as particularly inventive and influential.

The bank is a longtime sponsor of the Stanislaus County Fair. Over the years, we have sponsored various events including the dairy and beef barns, the livestock office, or the hospitality room. This year we partnered with the fair in renovating the Fair’s Digital (LED) Billboard. It is located on the northeast corner of the fairgrounds near the corner of Fulkerth and Golden State Boulevard.
This billboard is a wonderful resource for the community and an excellent way for the Fair and its advertisers to publicize upcoming events and promote our part of the valley.
Oak Valley has partnered with Iron Mountain to have two on site Shred Days for customers this year. The first Shred Day was held on Friday, June 24 at the McHenry Branch.
If you missed out on the first event, don’t worry, the second Shred Day will be held on August 26 at the Ripon Branch – 150 N. Wilma Avenue in the Schemper’s Ace Hardware shopping center.
We would like to encourage our customers to take advantage of this opportunity and protect their identity by securely destroying unwanted documents.
This year, Oak Valley Community Bank reached its silver anniversary, commemorating 25 years of community support and relationship banking. To celebrate this milestone, customers, friends, and community members were invited to visit our Oakdale Branch for a Customer Appreciation Barbeque, or their local branch to enjoy refreshments and help celebrate the bank’s birthday.
We appreciate your continued support and look forward to serving you for many years to come.
The Bank was excited to take a part of Relay for Life as a Bronze Sponsor. The event took place on April 23 at the Oakdale High School.
This year, Oakdale Relay for Life raised over $80,000. Oak Valley Cancer Busters raised over $6,500.
We would like to thank our Team Captain, Sarah Rushing along with staff members for joining forces to assist in the fight against cancer.
Relay for Life is an overnight community fundraising walk. It is a family-friendly environment for the entire community. During the event, teams of people gather at school, parks, or other public places and take turns walking for the duration of the event. Funds raised go towards research and patient services in the community. Some of those programs such as Look Good-Feel Better, Hope Lodge, and Road to Recovery to name a few.
