Associated Bank hosted its first companywide Volunteer Day of Service on Wednesday, July 26. During this event, hundreds of colleagues from over 100 communities volunteered in activities such as packaging, sorting, and organizing food to ensure food security and efficient distribution to those in need.
“Community means something really special at Associated Bank — and for our colleagues, that starts with volunteering,” said Andy Harmening, president and CEO, Associated Bank. “Our Volunteer Day of Service was focused on food security because it supports a basic need across all our markets and it is a cause that our colleagues are passionate about.”
Associated Bank colleagues enjoyed their various volunteer activities. “We were absolutely impressed and blown away by what we learned and experienced,” stated a colleague.
