Regions And Its Associates Give Back Through Share The Good

Regions Bank associates in 16 states kick off the company’s annual Share the Good campaign today. Share the Good is a month-long, company-wide effort to give back to the local communities served by the bank through service, education and volunteerism.

Share the Good activities include providing veterans and active duty military families free admission to the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere and collecting toys for foster and disadvantaged children in Alabama and Mississippi. Florida bankers will be participating in a food for kids backpacks program and hundreds of bankers will teach financial literacy classes in Illinois, Texas, Indiana, and Georgia.

Each year during Share the Good weeks, Regions associates work to support community and non-profit organizations by providing financial education opportunities and collecting needed goods and supplies. Share the Good runs throughout the month of November, with individual areas and cities setting aside one week to make a difference.

“Banking is about more than deposits and loans,” said Rick Swagler, director of external affairs. “For us, it’s about developing strong communities and providing better opportunities for everyone. Share the Good taps into our associates’ passion to make a difference where they live and work, creating a powerful combination that benefits everyone.”

Regions provides associates with a paid day off each year to volunteer in the community through its What a Difference A Day Makes program.

Regions’ commitment to Social Responsibility and giving back is catalogued in the company’s yearly Social Responsibility Report. The entire report is available on the Community Engagement page on
