Community FIRST

It's not just a slogan, it's the heart of all that we do...

We at Ohio Valley Bank pledge to make a difference in our communities. 

Whether it is volunteering to plant flowers or providing guidance for non-profit groups or inspiring others to shop locally, or opening our doors for free events for the community, when there is good work to be done, you will find someone from OVB close by.


Coming Community Events hosted by OVB 

All October - Coat Drive. The bank's Veterans Action Committee is hosting a Coat Drive during the month of October. Drop off coats or monetary donations at any branch. The coats will be passed out to veterans and their families in Gallipolis, Huntington, Barboursville, and Chillicothe.
