Abilene-based First Financial Bankshares held its fifth annual company-wide Day of Service on Columbus Day, October 12. First Financial partnered with local nonprofit organizations across Texas to provide assistance and perform service projects in each of the communities it serves. With more than 900 employees participating, Day of Service initiatives took place in 40 locations across First Financial’s footprint. This year’s projects included landscaping, painting, disaster assistance, pre-packaged meal preparation and various local downtown cleanup and revitalization efforts.
“We are professional bankers serving and building our communities,” says Scott Dueser, chairman, president and CEO. “Our communities need us now more than ever, and our annual Day of Service is always one of the highlights of our year. Having so many dedicated and professional bankers across the state who have chosen to give up their holiday to help those in need in the communities that we serve is so special to see.”
