This spring, the bank received fourteen Pledge 10 grant applications. From those applications, the bank was honored to fund seven outstanding projects. Pledge 10 seeks to promote four specific areas of focus: Education, Youth Development, Financial Literacy, and Community Enrichment. All four areas were addressed and funded. Congratulations to our 2017 Pledge 10 Spring grant cycle recipients. Pictured to the right are area youth repairing a basketball court located in Jonesboro.
