PrimeSouth Bank Makes an Impact During the Holiday Season

Tuesday, January 21, 2014

(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

 “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.

 PrimeSouth Bank is a locally owned bank and has locations in Tallassee, Wetumpka,  and Pike Road, Alabama. To learn more about the bank, please visit or call (334) 283-6594.

“We all need to be invested in our communities,” said PrimeSouth Bank’s CEO Dave Baggett. “The work that is done by the Salvation Army is invaluable and we are proud to be even a small part.”

Online Security

Thursday, March 01, 2012

Since July of 2001, the FDIC has made it mandatory for banks to provide customers with access to their privacy policy.

It is your right to know what banks or financial institutions do with your personal information. So, it is part of Federal regulations that banks and other financial institutions provide access to their privacy policies.

In addition, many companies track user activities on their websites in order to better understand both browsing and buying behaviors. They use this information to market information directly to either a specific target audience or even to a specific person. Since many of the software programs that websites use to carry out such activities can gain access to the personal information held on your laptop or home computer, it is very important to understand how to protect yourself from prying eyes. 

It is not always reputable companies that use these technologies, but also criminals who can steal not just your personal information, but your money and your reputation too!

For more information about online security, read the following article on the FDIC Website:
