Team Southside & Folds of Honor Initiativ

Southside Bank (Honorable Winner) - Tyler, TX

2022 Community Committment Awards Submission

  • Supporting Military Families
  • Asset Size: Medium

Southside Bank recognizes that the freedoms we enjoy today, including the freedoms of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, would be nothing without our military men and women who have bravely fought to protect this nation; particularly those who have lost their lives or who have become disabled in the line of duty. What a price we could never repay.

Therefore, team members came together in the month of May 2022 (in preparation for Memorial Day) to show unified support through a fundraising effort to benefit children and families of fallen and disabled military men and women.

Through this effort, Southside team members collectively raised over ,400 for these children and their families. With Southside's matching gift, a donation of ,471.80 was given to Folds of Honor in June 2022.

In addition, Southside's North Texas Region has been a support of Folds of Honor for the last three years, giving a total of ,000.

In total, Southside and its team members have given collectively over ,000 to support families of fallen or disabled military members. This is not simply a 'bank' initiative, but rather a collective effort between the Bank and its team members - making this a noteworthy effort. Southside doesn't just put 'its money where its mouth is'... so do our employees.
