HEPPNER — Bank of Eastern Oregon recently announced its school mascot debit card program has contributed more than $38,500 to its Oregon and Washington high school associated student body organizations since the program’s inception.

Initiated in September 2013, the Bank of Eastern Oregon mascot debit card program serves the Heppner, Riverside, Irrigon, Ione, Condon and Weston-McEwen, Oregon, and Colfax, Washington, high school associated student body programs.

“During these unprecedented times the school mascot cards provide much needed extra funding for these student body programs,” said Gary Propheter, EVP and chief operations officer.

The program generates 5 cents per transaction performed with each school mascot card to that school’s program and the $10 annual renewal fee for each card also goes directly to the ASB.

“This program is a great way for local fans to show support for their local school and demonstrates the bank’s commitment to helping our local communities prosper through a robust activities program at every school,” Propheter said. “We encourage everyone in the surrounding communities to sign up for a mascot card supporting their school … as you can see, 5 cents per transaction adds up.”
