ICBA honors Two Rivers Bank and Trust
BURLINGTON- The Independent Community Bankers of America named Two Rivers Bank and Trust, Burlington, a top honoree in the 2013 ICBA National Community Bank Service Awards for the bank’s outstanding leadership in its annual Paint-A-Thon project.
“ICBA founded the National Community Bank Service Awards program to help celebrate the outstanding volunteer efforts of the nation’s community banks, which exist to serve the needs of their customers and communities each and every day,” incoming ICBA chairman, Bill Loving, president and CEO of Pendleton Community Bank in Franklin W. Va. said. “Two Rivers Bank and Trust exemplifies what community service is all about. We commend them for giving their time, expertise and resources to better their community and the lives of local residents.”
Two Rivers Bank and Trust was named a National Award recipient in recognition of its Paint-A-Thon program, a project it has managed since 1993, which beautifies the community, raises property value of hundreds of homes and builds community spirit and pride. With help from its 128 employees in 14 locations, along with additional community volunteers and Diamond Vogel Paint and Community Action of Southeast Iowa as sponsors, the Paint-A-Thon project helps approximately 16 homeowners per year, whose homes are in need of a new coat of paint. Many of the homeowners either lack the resources or ability to paint their home themselves, so hundreds of local volunteers spend several hours after work, painting the exterior of each home.
“We at Two Rivers Bank are honored to be named as an ICBA Service Award winner,” said Kent Gaudian, President of Two Rivers Bank and Trust. “Our program exemplifies the core values of community banking. We look forward to continuing to serve the residents of our community.”
The Mt. Pleasant branch of Two Rivers Bank and Trust has participated in the Paint-A-Thon program through 2012.
