Columbus Day is a traditional bank holiday, while the State observes Indigenous People’s Day. However, at Premier Community Bank, it’s an opportunity to give back. On Monday, October 14th the entire Premier Staff went M.A.D. in their local communities, volunteering their time to Make A Difference.
Each of Premier’s ten branches partnered with local charities and service organizations, over 27 groups in total. Additionally, 50 local businesses accepted the Food Pantry Challenge, collecting over 1,350 items that were recently delivered to food pantries in the communities we serve.
“Ronald Reagan once said that we can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone,” said Tom Pamperin, President/CEO of Premier Community Bank. “Similarly, Albert Pike noted that what we have done for ourselves alone dies with us, but what we have done for others and the world that remains is immortal. In the end, our goal is to help people in our communities in meaningful ways that leave a lasting, positive impression.”
The projects covered a wide spectrum, from volunteering in schools and nursing homes to cleanup and beautification efforts at local non-profits. Together, 99 Premier employees donated 643.5 hours on that single day.
