Sharing the Good. Recognizing sacrifices.
Every year, Regions Bank works to Share the Good with fellow community members.
This year, our associates offered support for small businesses and nonprofit community partners, recognizing them for their resilience and strength in serving our communities during the global pandemic. Here are a few examples from across the Southeast, Midwest, and Texas. From random acts of kindness to surprise lunches, each event was designed to reflect our appreciation.
In Anniston, Alabama, teams of associates shared a surprise lunch with people who work at Midtown Outlet, a local small business, as well as members of the Anniston Police Department. The goal: serving those who serve our community and support the economy.
In Jackson, Tennessee, associates participated in a Department of Veterans Affairs resource fair providing free financial education resources and awarding gift cards to a local restaurant to five lucky winners.
In Indianapolis, Regions fueled support for entrepreneurs and supported small businesses by delivering food from a popular seafood spot to a local small business. Read about Chef Oya’s commitment to feeding the community.
Also, in Houston, we Shared the Good by visiting Magpies & Peacocks to support the nonprofit’s work in creating upcycled products and offering skill building and sustainability education.
Associates in Birmingham, Alabama, beat the heat by providing ice cream to participants from the American Baseball Association and Summer Adventures in Learning (SAIL) programs. The SAIL programs help bridge the summer learning gap for children by providing needed education and enrichment activities.
And finally, in Augusta, Georgia, lunch was provided to Barney’s pharmacy. This small business stayed open throughout the pandemic to provide care for the community. Barney’s staff offered COVID testing and vaccines, and the pharmacy supports the community by hosting various support groups and providing patient education events.
In conclusion, Regions’ teams have gone the extra mile to Share the Good and recognize those who made selfless sacrifices during the global pandemic. Small businesses across the country were faced with several uncertainties and forced to navigate their way through the constant disruption of COVID-19. The resilience of many businesses was tested in ways owners never expected.
At Regions, we have witnessed our community partners move past the challenges to show strength, courage, and hope. That’s why we chose to Share the Good and share our appreciation for those who have continued to be the backbone of our economy.
