We’re not even half way through the 2018 year, and our employees have already put in tremendous work in our community. To support our community, Family Trust gives employees eight hours of work time to volunteer.

2018 Employee Volunteering Efforts So Far

Beth Bergstrom, Assistant Branch manager at the BBC branch, volunteered with Tails of the Trail. This is a non-profit organization partnering with local animal shelters and rescues to offer publicly attended hiking events. Volunteers hike with homeless dogs for much needed exercise and socialization.

“It is heartwarming to see how excited the dogs are to get out to the park or trails for a nice long walk, love and attention, and did I mention treats? It is a great day for all!” -Beth Bergstrom

A group of Family Trust employees (Renee McDonnell, Greg Roche, and Katie Stacks) volunteered with the York County Habitat for Humanity to paint the exterior of a church and neighboring home in Rock Hill. Greg Roche, Chief Information Officer, invites others to volunteer because of the benefits it provides both the volunteer and the organization.

“People grow and add value to society by broadening their perspective of the world. We are born with a natural tendency to personally feel good by doing good things for others.” -Greg Roche

Employees are thankful for the time Family Trust gives them to volunteer. “It means so much to have Family Trust offer a Volunteer Paid Time Off Day,” Bergstrom says. “It shows our commitment and support to our employees and the community and it is a rewarding experience!”
