“1000 Meals a Day in May” food drive

Kim Stearley (right), Manager of the Brazil 59 Banking Center, accepts a contribution from customer Kenda Dierdorf for First Financial’s “1000 Meals a Day in May” food drive.

Every Friday in May was drive-up donation day, when First associates headed out to the drive-ups to make it easy for customers to give. The drive far exceeded its goal, collecting food and funds equivalent to 144,514 nutritious meals for kids and adults in our service area who struggle to get enough to eat.

Free Saturday Shred Days

First Financial offered free secure shredding on Saturday mornings at 20 banking centers throughout our service area. The shred days are a community service aimed at preventing identity theft that can occur when personal papers are discarded in the trash, where they can easily be accessed.

In addition to documents for shredding and recycling, we also accepted worn-out American flags for respectful disposal by VFW Post 972. During these events, 27,908 pounds of documents and several hundred flags were collected. Teller John Harris was among the First associates helping the many people who took advantage of the events.

The three-day festival attracts hundreds of visitors and is a signature event for the Clark County area.
