While Alpine Bank traditionally celebrates National Volunteer Week, this year bank employees are extending their community volunteering for the full month of April to allow more employees to participate and to increase their support for nonprofits in the 28 Colorado communities the bank serves.
"At Alpine Bank, we understand the bank is only as strong as the communities we serve," said bank chairman Bob Young. "Our staff's commitment to neighborhood programs and nonprofits is something we are proud of and have always encouraged."
Alpine Bank pays its staff to volunteer at the nonprofit organizations of their choosing up to three full days or 24 hours throughout the year. In 2018, bank employees volunteered more than 14,000 hours to help address diverse community needs. To focus attention on the importance of giving back, this year Alpine Bank is encouraging all staff to volunteer at least one hour during the month of April.
Alpine Bank is also giving you a chance to #GiveBack to Colorado nonprofits. You could win $1,000 for your organization of choice through a Facebook challenge. Anyone can nominate a nonprofit organization to be eligible to win. Find the video on Alpine Bank's Facebook, like the video and tag your favorite Colorado nonprofit in the comments section to be entered to win. Deadline to enter is Tuesday, April 30, at 10 p.m. For sweepstake rules and more details, visit alpinebank.com.
In addition to thousands of hours of volunteering spurred and funded by the bank, Alpine also donated $4.2 million to nonprofits in Colorado communities.
