Four years ago, Independence Bank set out on a mission to build a Habitat home in the eight counties we serve over an eight year period. On Monday, July 8th, employees along with community directors, Habitat officials and the Ezell family broke ground on the fourth of eight homes. The commitment that we have for all of our communities is something that comes so natural to each and every employee at the Bank. We are always ready to help a neighbor or a complete stranger. It’s just the way we do things. To us, it’s not about the recognition, it’s about making an impact in the communities we serve. We don’t claim to be master carpenters, but that hasn’t stopped our employees from donating over 1,300 hours on our previous three builds.
The Ezell family is no stranger to Habitat for Humanity. Brandy along with her two children have been very involved in the process and they are anxious to start construction. It’s through organizations like Habitat for Humanity that allows Independence Bank the unique opportunity to make an impact in the communities we call home. The Habitat build is always one of my favorite projects throughout the year and I look forward to the day when we get to hand over the keys to the new homeowner. The smiles on their faces let me know that we’ve made a difference! Even though we broke ground only a few short days ago, we can already see the vision of house number four becoming a reality for the Ezell family.
