Our Birmingham team partnered alongside Woodlawn based Serving You Ministries for its annual SERVE week.  Part of our team reorganized the ministry’s warehouse and food pantry while others spent the day removing aged roofing and prepping it for new shingles.  What a privilege to give back to our community.  This isn’t what we do – it’s who we are.  


Our Birmingham team members had a great time partnering with Town & Country Ford, BBVA Compass and C&B Piping serving our community at the Habitat for Humanity (Greater Birmingham) Home for the Holidays December build.

Associates rallied together to donate Easter Baskets for needy children and senior citizens in Birmingham.  Many of our staff volunteered their time and money to purchase basic needs as well as games and snacks to help some underprivileged children and the elderly have a brighter Easter holiday.



Our Metro Central team partners with Hope Inspired Ministries (HIM) in Birmingham teaching Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace. HIM serves low-skilled, poorly educated, and chronically unemployed men and women by preparing them to obtain and maintain employment.
