C&N Bank – Giving Back, Giving Together
C&N has always believed that the economic vitality of our local communities is the lifeblood of our institution. That’s why we continue to stay deeply involved with our communities, providing support in many different ways. So much so, that we created a brand new program in March 2015 to take this commitment to a whole new level. We call it “Giving Back, Giving Together,” and it’s done just that and more.
Our team members are kind, generous, good-hearted people and they were just itching to do something miraculous for their communities! So we developed Giving Back, Giving Together to bring focus to our internal charitable efforts and make a substantial impact to one important cause. For its first year, we decided to address the problem of food insecurity in our area, named our program “Giving Back, Giving Together,” and things took off from there.
