This year we asked a simple question – How can we be a catalyst for economic recovery? – and we came up with a big answer.
The path out of the recession starts locally, so we’re infusing a billion dollars into the neighborhoods we serve with our Community Lending Campaign. Invested wisely, these loans can spark billions of dollars more in new local business and jobs that will have a lasting impact.
But the money is just paper without the ideas and passion of the entrepreneurs, innovators and small businesses around us. We need your inspiration to turn this potential into prosperity. We want to inspire pride in the local communities where people and businesses are helping to raise each other – and this country – out of the recession.
It is through your hard work, new ideas and collaborative approach that we’ll all emerge stronger and be ready for the next phase of recovery. If you want to learn more or have an idea you want to put to work, come into your neighborhood store or give us a call.
