CITIZENS BANK KILGORE RECEIVES CORNERSTONE AWARD
The Texas Bankers Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Texas Bankers Association, presented a Cornerstone Award to Kilgore-based Citizens Bank for its Habitat for Humanity home build project. Sammy York, president and CEO and Laura Rebouche', virtual banking center and marketing manager, accepted the award on May 5, 2016 at the Texas Bankers Association's 132nd Annual Convention held in Grapevine, Texas.
Beginning in 2015, Citizen Bank employees took the lead to begin the new Habitat for Humanity build project on South Street in Kilgore. Every other week, volunteers from the bank worked all day Fridays and used their own time on Saturday mornings to help a single mother and her three children in becoming one step closer to home ownership. As of February 2016, thirty-one Citizens bank employees and spouses put in more than 900 hours of volunteer service to the home build. The labor donated by the bank employees has helped save more than $18,000 in labor costs, in addition to the thousands of dollars Citizen Bank donated.
This is the 14th year the Texas Bankers Foundation has recognized Texas banks for their outstanding community involvement through the Cornerstone Award competition. Projects have included neighborhood and housing development, small business and industrial development, main street revitalization, community celebrations and support of music or theater programs. Serving Texas bankers since 1885, the Texas Bankers Association is the largest and the oldest state bankers association in the nation.
