For Montecito Bank & Trust (MB&T), our mission to make the communities we serve better places to live and work is always at the heart of everything we do. The associates at MB&T are encouraged to live our mission every day by sharing their time and talent in the communities where they live and work. In 2019, our team of 230 associates volunteered a total of 7,531 hours in a number of ways from financial literacy classes to auction check-outs to community service. The largest amount of time contributed was through our L.E.A.D. Program (Leadership. Expertise. Advice. Dedication.) where associates volunteered their time serving on nonprofit boards and committees offering financial and leadership expertise. In 2019, 50 of the approximately 230 MB&T associates served on a board or committee volunteering a total of 3,749 hours for 114 local nonprofits as part of the L.E.A.D. Program - that's almost 50% of our total volunteer hours for the year.
