First Reliance celebrates with random acts of kindness
First Reliance Bank celebrated its 21st anniversary by finding unique ways to give back to fellow community members across its six major market areas Aug. 20-21.
The Florence-based community bank, which has grown to 10 locations in the Carolinas since its 1999 founding, designated funds for local ‘random acts of kindness’ to commemorate the special day.
The companywide giving event took place the same week the community bank was recognized as a Best Place to Work in South Carolina for the 15th year in a row – an honor the organization does not take for granted.
“At the end of the day, our company is powered by the people we serve. It felt fitting to celebrate them as we commemorate 21 wonderful years,” said First Reliance Bank CEO and President Rick Saunders. “As we continue to invest in our branch communities, and make a home in new ones throughout the region, I hope we’ve started a tradition that will last at least another 21 years.”
