Local residents and businesses rely on us to help secure their financial futures, but our commitment doesn't end there. We believe that in order to build long-lasting relationships with our clients, we also have to serve the local communities in which they live and work. Community involvement through charitable organizations and civic events is deeply important to us. In today's challenging economic times, it is especially important to balance our obligations to our stakeholders with the responsibility we feel to our community.
We support the communities we serve and work in through charitable contributions and leadership. One of the ways we do this is through LifeBridgeSM, a unique free life insurance program that helps children of income-eligible families pay for their education expenses if their insured parent or guardian passes away during the term of the policy. It's designed to help parents protect their dream of providing an education for their children - even if they can't be there to provide for them. We're proud of the positive impact LifeBridge has on the lives of participating families.
