    A Community Outreach Initiative of b1BANK

01 / 01




As a community bank, we believe in giving back to the community through hands-on volunteering. That’s why we established our b1COMMUNITY Outreach Program to give all employees paid time off during the workday to help area nonprofits.

The goal of b1COMMUNITY is to encourage our employees to spend more time serving causes they value in our respective communities. Throughout the year, b1BANKers get opportunities to do so while simultaneously improving those communities for our stakeholders.


b1BANK employees are on a mission to log 3,000 volunteer hours in 2021!

So far this year we have logged over 1,800 volunteer hours in our communities!

“Volunteering gives me a sense of purpose. I love to volunteer because I feel as though I can enhance the lives of others in my community.”

Carla’s favorite nonprofit to volunteer for: Terrebonne United Churches Food Bank

Carla’s favorite memory from a b1COMMUNITY event: "While volunteering at the local foodbank, I spent half the morning boxing various food items for distribution that afternoon.  I didn’t think we’d be able to package all the boxes before day's end. After distribution that afternoon, I walked into the warehouse and most of the boxes were gone.  It was such a gratifying feeling to know we helped so many families in our community."
