Premier Bank has announced a program that will grant a $1,000 award to a local community service organization in each of its five operating divisions. In announcing the program, Premier Bank Consolidated Division President Darius Johnson said, “This program is another of the many ways in which Premier Bank demonstrates its community focus, and we invite local service organizations to submit an application.”
The program begins May 6, and applications will be accepted through June 30. Applications are available at the bank’s offices in Richmond and Hampton. Interested community organizations will complete an application, describing its mission and how the $1,000 would be used to improve the community. A committee of bank employees will review the applications and announce the winning organization in July.
