First Federal Bank, with branches in Port Royal and on Lady’s Island, has announced it will donate to 60 non-profit organizations over a period of 60 days.
Founded in 1962, 2022 marks First Federal Bank’s 60th anniversary of being a community bank. To celebrate, bank employees will nominate local organizations and one winner will be drawn each day for 60 days – $1,000 will be donated to each of the winners. On the 60th day, the non-profit drawn will receive a grand prize of $6,000 to conclude the 60 days of giving.
“First Federal Bank is the only mutual bank charted in the state of Florida and is committed to supporting local non-profit organization,” First Federal Bank President and CEO John Medina said in a release. “Recognizing and supporting the work of charities strengthens our towns and underscores our commitment to remaining a financially stable member of the community.”
Originally founded to offer savings accounts and make home loans to its neighbors, First Federal Bank has a long legacy of giving.
“Our customers and community partners inspire us to give back, while providing the best, personable banking experience. 60 days of giving is a perfect example of that giving culture,” said Stephanie McClendon, EVP and Chief of Community Banking and a 23 year veteran of First Federal.
