Sparky Defibrillator Challenge Benefits from
1st National Bank Staff Casual Because We Care Efforts
At 1st National Bank, the last Friday of each month means more than just casual Friday. On Friday, July 25th, the bank’s “Casual Because We Care” proceeds – some $319 – were presented to the Sparky Defibrillator Challenge to further their mission.
The “Casual Because We Care” program at 1st National Bank allows staff, for a nominal donation, to dress casual on the last Friday of each month. Each branch office and department takes a turn in selecting a local charitable cause to benefit from the efforts. Customers may also donate through donation collection jars within the branches. Plus, First National Bank matches staff and customer proceeds.
For July, First National’s Main Office Branch selected the Sparky Defibrillator Challenge as the benefactor of the bank’s “Casual Because We Care” program. The Sparky Defibrillator Challenge would like to have AED's and the proper training in all business in the United States. But for now are working in Livingston County to help Organizations, Non-Profit, and business to purchase AED's to help save the life of all the people who visit their location.
Ron Long, President/CEO at First National said, “1st National takes great pride in adding value to and giving back to the communities we serve.” “Our staff is second to none and the “Casual Because We Care” program is just one shining example of how we go above and beyond, especially when it comes to the community,” he added.
First National Bank has been part of the Livingston County community for more than 120 years and has been recognized for ten of the last 11 years as Livingston County’s best bank in the Reader’s Choice Awards conducted by the Livingston County Press and Argus. First National takes great pride in its corporate citizenship and is respected for its support of causes and events that add to the quality of life across Livingston County.
