Why We Share With Our Shelters

 

Giving back to the communities we serve has been a mission of Bank Independent since our founding in 1947. It was this commitment that led to the formation of our quarterly "Share" drives, in which we offer our 27 sales offices as convenient drop-off locations for folks who want to donate to local organizations across north Alabama.

Sharing Toys, Sharing Joy This Holiday Season

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! We all recently stuffed ourselves on turkey, shopped for deals during Black Friday, and wept with tears of joy or sorrow (depending on who you root for) while watching the Iron Bowl.

I mean, hungry as in you haven't had anything at all to eat in days. Or your mom's not home because she works two jobs and the only thing in your cabinets is a box of cake mix, so you eat that. Or you want to feed your children but it's the end of the month and you have no money to buy even a jar of peanut butter.

Observations of a Bank Independent Intern

Going to school out of state and having a lot of small town passion, I never miss an opportunity to interject a fun fact about my hometown in a conversation. “Did you know that Tuscumbia is the birthplace of Helen Keller?” or “Oh! This song was recorded in Muscle Shoals!”  People ask me where I got the cute top I am wearing, and I say it’s from a local shop in my hometown.
