Bank of Birmingham warms the holidays for Bound Together
December 19, 2013 - Birmingham, MI
Bank of Birmingham President/CEO Rob Farr announced today that he and his team at the Bank are pledging support for Bound Together, a charitable organization that delivers help and support to at risk elementary school children in Pontiac.
"Through both culture and mission, our organization is dedicated to giving back to the communities we serve" said Mr. Farr. "Bank of Birmingham has a history of supporting causes that help make a difference. We see this venture with Bound Together as an investment in a brighter future. They help make it possible for children who aren't fortunate enough to have the basics or lack the skills and support for that chance to succeed. As a banker, I view that opportunity as a very solid investment."
Bank employees will provide winter coats to 23 children through donations that will then be matched by Bank of Birmingham. In addition to the coats, Farr indicated that the Bank will donate $5,000 for a 2014 Bound Together to help fund their other tutoring and nutrition programs for children.
Bound Together helps create safe, stable environments for elementary students who don't always enjoy the best of opportunities for achieving personal and academic excellence. According to Jane Porter, Bound Together Executive Director, "this pledge of support from Bank of Birmingham will help our organization achieve so much for kids that truly need something as common as a comfortable warm coat or that sense of self-worth and academic growth".
