Bankers at serve week in Birmingham

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.
