COSHOCTON – Peoples Bancorp Foundation, a non-profit corporation formed to make donations in Peoples Bank market areas, recently awarded $5,000 to the Coshocton Unified Boosters toward the renovation of Stewart Field.

The donation will be used to help fund Phase I of the estimated $595,000 project.

“Stewart Field has been the home of Coshocton High School Redskin athletic teams and the marching band for decades. We are very happy to support the boosters and work together to ensure it remains their home and becomes an asset available to the entire Coshocton community,” said Phil Hunt, Peoples Bank Branch Manager – Coshocton Main.

Phase I focuses on the field surface and will include the installation of bleacher wraps with a logo-theme design that will encase the area under the stands, excavation of the existing playing surface, installation of base and drainage system for new field surface, and installation of ProGrass artificial turf surface. With the much-needed upgrades, the facility may be used year-round for school and community events.

Peoples Bancorp Foundation contributions focus on charitable giving in four major areas: Community investment and economic development, youth and education, human services programs that improve the social needs of low- to moderate-income communities and individuals, and the arts and cultures. Organizations receiving grants meet those requirements and serve the markets where Peoples Bank currently has office locations.

Peoples Bancorp Inc. is a diversified financial products and services company with $2.6 billion in assets, 59 locations and 58 ATMs in Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky. Learn more about Peoples at www.peoplesbancorp.com.
