First Interstate Bank locations across the nation were closed at Noon on Wednesday, Sept. 14 in observance of the organization’s annual Commitment to Community Volunteer Day. Bank employees ventured out into local communities to offer a little bit of help to non-profit organizations. According to www.firstinterstatebank. com, “Projects include financial literacy trainings, combating food insecurity, building affordable housing, and creating hygiene and wellness kits for people struggling with homelessness.”

This year, volunteers converged on Laurel Community Hope’s outreach center to help with some cleaning and organization of the facility’s resources. A group of six volunteers were present at the location, working together to help with anything needed.

“We’re just helping them get some things cleaned up and organized,” says First Interstate Branch Manager Dallas Hoppe, “We’re out to help out nonprofits in the community to find out what they need.” Hoppe and First Interstate Financial Services Representative Kasey Reinemer helped organize Community Hope’s pantry and intake area, while other volunteers worked to clean the center’s thrift store.

More than 3, 500 bank employees in 233 communities participated in this year’s volunteer opportunity.
