Local Business Owner Named Home State Bank Extraordinary Citizen

Posted On: March 5, 2019 by Home State Bank in: awards, General

We are happy to announce our most recent Extraordinary Citizen, Jen Badger, owner of ShineOn designs in Jefferson. Avril Shahan, with the help of her mother, Tabatha Shahan, nominated Jen Badger.  The nomination outlined staggering statistics related to childhood cancer and went on to say, “since August of 2017, four children have been diagnosed with cancer who either live in our community or are connect to our community through family.”  Jen has graciously volunteered her services as a fundraising opportunity to help families with expenses.  However, in Avril’s case, Jen didn’t stop with just a t-shirt fundraiser.  She went on to assist with a goal of raising enough funds to cover the cost of 600 chemo shirts for Iowa children who are fighting for their lives to beat cancer.  Jen advertised and allowed people to purchase directly though her store and then donated gold cancer ribbons to make the plain cancer shirts a little more fun.
