We are privileged to partner with wonderful organizations, helping to make a positive impact and providing yet another way for our employees to make a difference in the communities where we live and work. Our employees have spent 820 hours (thus far) in 2019, volunteering in whatever capacity an organization of choice may need. This can include being a board member and helping with fundraising events, to actual hands-on labor.

To further uphold this commitment, our charitable efforts focus on the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) in which volunteer hours, loans, and First Texas Bank donations are positively impacting our communities.
