SUN PRAIRIE, Wisconsin. – The Bank of Sun Prairie has asked residents to turn their currency into dollars or deposit coins into their accounts.
The demand is the result of a nationwide parts shortage due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This is one of the outcomes of the pandemic that we don’t necessarily see coming, but it makes perfect sense,” said Jimmy Kauffman, chief executive officer and chairman of the board of directors of Bank of Sun Meadow. “There are just fewer people who physically circulate coins. We’re happy to help by collecting as many coins as possible from members of our community while the Fed works to make more! ”
The press release says that the coin drive is open to members of the community, whether or not they are a Bank of Sun Prairie customer.
Those who wish to help can go to the first drive-thru lane at one of the bank’s Sun Prairie or Cottage Grove locations and deposit their coins in a plastic bag. To return a larger quantity of coins, residents can make an appointment for curbside service by calling 608-837-4511 or sending a message to [email protected]
