Pine River State Bank has coordinated with the Local Schools in Pine River, Pillager, Breezy Point, and Emily to help out local students and families in need.

Like many other things this year, our school supply drive is a little different this year. We will still be accepting loose supplies, but monetary donations are preferred.

Donations will be the in the form of either supplies or a donation to technology for the purchase of laptops as requested by the individual schools.

Any donation is greatly appreciated, and will go to the school of your choice. Let’s get together and help our local students have what they need to succeed in the 2020-2021 School Year! For more information, please contact your local branch or visit our website.

Equifax Breach Update

You may have heard by now that Equifax, one of the three major credit bureaus, reported on September 7th 2017 that a breach in their data base impacts approximately 143 million people. While Pine River State Bank did not experience a breach, helping you protect your personal information is very important to us so we are providing you some information to do so. More information is available on the Equifax web site at

Following is some general information to help you protect your identity:

Tips to generally avoid identity theft and hacking:

  • When banking or paying credit cards online, avoid passwords that include personal information, such as mother’s maiden name or date of birth. Instead, use something unique that only you know.
  • Never give out personal information over the phone, through the mail, or on the Internet unless you've initiated the contact and are sure you know who you're dealing with. If you must share personal information, always confirm that you are dealing with a legitimate organization.
  • Never use your Social Security number on your driver’s license or other forms of identification.
  • Banks will not ask you to verify personal information over the phone or via email. If you receive a phone call or email asking you to verify information, end the call, do not respond, and call the bank directly.
  • If you receive an email asking for personal information, do not hit the “reply” button or click on any website link in the email. Instead, go directly to the sender's website by typing in the sender's website address.
  • Do not plug in unknown or unfamiliar jump drives into your laptop or desktop computer.
  • Protect your personal information. Don’t leave sensitive documents containing personal information where anyone can see it.
  • Use a shredder before disposing of personal records, especially financial records—preferably a cross-cut shredder. (Thieves have been known to paste together single shred documents to obtain information).
  • Don’t use an automatic log-in feature on your computer.
  • Customers should periodically obtain credit reports from each nationwide credit reporting agency. If any information on the credit report appears fraudulent, request that the credit reporting agency delete that information from the credit report file. Under federal law, consumers are entitled to one free copy of their credit report every 12 months from each of the three nationwide credit reporting agencies. Obtain a free copy by going to or by calling 1-877-322-8228.
