Park National partners with Dawes

NEWARK - The Park National Bank recently announced Grow Green, a special campaign to increase usership of electronic bank statements, an environmentally friendly service, and also to support The Dawes Arboretum. Park has pledged to donate $1 for each person who signs up for the free eStatement service through May 2.

Clients enjoy the simplicity, quickness and enhanced security of eStatements, said Laura Lewis, senior vice president of marketing and human resources. We had so much success with this partnership last year that we really wanted to do it again. We hope to motivate those who haven't signed up for this great service by the environmental impact and the donation to Dawes. It's a great way for us to partner with our clients to come together and make a difference in our community.

The eStatement service allows account owners to stop receiving their bank statements via U.S. mail and view them instead online, through secure online banking pages. They can view their daily activity as the month progresses, and then the bank sends an email reminder to the customer each month when the full statement is posted. Bank clients can easily enroll in the free eStatement service by accessing their online banking account and changing a setting. They may also ask for assistance at their neighborhood Park National Bank office.

Key benefits of eStatements are:

Increased security: No private financial data travelling through the U.S. mail system and no shredding or safe disposal concerns.

Instant access: No waiting for account statement to be mailed, statements are available any day through any computer.

Green impact: A great deal of resources are saved by eStatements. According to an environmental calculator on PayItGreen. org, in one year of being enrolled in eStatements, one customer will conserve three gallons of water, six pounds of greenhouse gases and .3 pounds of paper.

Last year during the promotion, 577 PNB clients signed up for eStatements and the bank was so pleased with the response that it donated $1,000 to The Dawes Arboretum's Arbor Day Festival.
