(Tallassee, AL) – PrimeSouth Bank, headquartered in Tallassee, has given new meaning to supporting the community during this holiday season.
In November, PrimeSouth CEO Dave Baggett issued a challenge to his staff to “make an impact” in the communities they serve. The challenge came in the form of a contest where bank employees were divided into four teams and given $250 per team to use in an effort of their choosing in the community. The rules of the contest were left intentionally vague, so the employees could determine themselves what would make the largest impact before the end of January, 2014.
One of the teams hit the ground running and has been collecting food items and monetary donations for the Elmore County Food Pantry. Their collection efforts end on January 28. In addition to collecting food, this team also spent time volunteering at the Food Pantry and seeing first hand the needs of the community.
“The Elmore County Food Pantry fills a definite void in our community. For every $1.00 given, six pounds of food can be served. With the community’s help, we are making a difference,” said President Jimmy Monk.
If you would like to assist PrimeSouth Bank with its Food Pantry donation, please drop off food items or monetary gifts (checks payable to Elmore County Food Pantry) to any PrimeSouth Bank location prior to January 28. A list of the locations can be found at www.primesouthbank.com/contact.
“We are thrilled at the enthusiasm and ingenuity of our team with their projects and can’t wait to see the results of all of the teams later in January. We are proud to live and work in the communities we serve,” Baggett said.
