(Reno, NV) – Heritage Bank of Nevada is offering assistance to federal workers in the Northern Nevada area that have been laid off work by the government shutdown and are looking for financial guidance. As the federal government shutdown continues into its fourth week, government workers and their families are feeling the effects of not receiving a paycheck as the government standoff continues. 

 Heritage Bank of Nevada’s President and CEO, Stan Wilmoth, has stepped up to assist those government workers in need of help during the shutdown. “Our hearts go out to our area government workers that are being affected by the federal government’s continued shutdown. We understand the challenges faced by families living without a paycheck and we would like to help where possible.  We encourage them to stop into Heritage Bank and we will work with them to assist in getting them through the shutdown as it continues into its fourth week.”

 As a local community bank, Heritage believes in giving back to the community by supporting our local customers and their families.  Any government employee that is affected by the shutdown in Carson City, Carson Valley, Reno or Sparks is encouraged to stop in and meet with our bankers. We want to help all qualified applicants affected to get through the shutdown.

Heritage Bank is proud to be the premier community bank in Northern Nevada, with local ownership and local decision-making.  Covering the area with seven convenient locations and access to thousands of surcharge-free ATMs nationwide, Heritage Bank of Nevada continues its commitment to supporting the customers and communities it serves in Northern Nevada.
