Step Forward Campaign

Step Forward sponsored by Mars Bank

Again this year Mars Bank is honoring first responders and military personnel who stepped forward when others needed help.

Between September 11, the day we never will forget, and November 11, Veterans Day, Mars Bank is asking for submissions of stories describing service, bravery or heroics. Our police, fire, emergency personnel and military ‘Step Forward’ when others are backing away or turning to run. We want to honor their bravery and share their stories with our community.

Thanks to everyone who helped support the It’s About the Warrior Foundation! Click Here to Learn More about this fun event to help Vets.

Submit a Story or Just Say “Thank You”

Submit a story via this online form, take the form to a Mars Bank location, or mail to Step Forward Submission, Mars Bank, PO Box 927, Mars, PA 15046.

Or if you just want to say “Thank You” to a first responder or veteran in particular, go on our  Facebook or Twitter pages and give your greeting and use the hashtag #StepForward.


Acts Big or Small

Step Forward to tell the story of one who has in some way big or small served an individual, our community or our country. Heroic actions can be big or little things. Sometimes a kind word or simple act can be heroic. Please share a story and share this page with others.
