Independent Bank was recently recognized by the American Bankers Association (ABA) in their ABA Foundation Community Commitment Awards in the category of Volunteerism for 2020. This award recognizes banks that put their employees to work for the good of the community, including outreach programs, mentoring, and other partnership initiatives.
Independent Bank received one of four honorable mentions in the Volunteerism category for their commitment to volunteering in their local communities, particularly with their annual “Making a Difference Day.” Every year, the Bank closes on Columbus Day for a company-wide volunteer day in which all employees volunteer with their teams at various organizations and non-profits across Michigan and parts of Ohio.
“We are honored to receive this recognition from the American Bankers Association,” said Tricia Schabel, Senior Vice President, Director of Marketing at Independent Bank. “Our employees look forward to our various volunteer events throughout the year, and it’s always nice to see the positive feedback that comes from our efforts.”
