Bank raises nearly $5K for Red CrossPublished 11:32am Friday, October 11, 2013
United Bank and the Escambia County division of the American Red Cross wrapped up their Atmore Rocks! And Flomaton Rocks! fund raising campaigns with a total of $4,889 raised, according to a United Bank press release.
United Bank hosted the rocking chair rock-a-thons Tuesday, Aug. 6, in Atmore and Wednesday, Aug. 7, in Flomaton. Local team captains recruited “rock stars” to join them in 15-minute increments for these very special “rock concerts” to benefit disaster relief efforts. In addition, local residents and businesses supported the effort with donations throughout the month.
“It is always encouraging to see the difference a community can make when we work together for a greater good,” said Bob Jones, United Bank president and CEO. “I am proud of how our United Bank team took a leadership role in this effort and for the community involvement and support that made the campaign such a success.”
United Bank wishes to thank its team captains for the events: Meg Jones (Escambia County Auburn University Alumni Club), Webb Nall (Pepsi/City Council), Susan Smith (City Council), Jim Staff (City of Atmore Mayor), Shane Hadley (Baldwin Gulf Coast Pest Control), Edie Jackson (Poarch Creek Indians), Bub Gideons (Atmore Advance), Joan Hackman (American Red Cross), Rev. Debora Bishop (First United Methodist Church), Steve Stanton (Flomaton Volunteer Fire Department), Kay Wagner (Former Flomaton Mayor), Swan Chavers (Flomaton High School), Karen Cash (Century Motors) and Atmore Chamber Ambassadors.
