(Fremont County, WY) – To demonstrate its commitment to the community, First Interstate Bank held its sixth annual Volunteer Day on Wednesday, Sept. 13. All First Interstate branches and offices closed at noon, giving its employees paid time to volunteer within their communities.
Locally, the FIB locations in Lander and Riverton volunteered their time at Almost Home Wyoming, Child Development Services of Fremont County, First Stop Help Center, Lander Pet Connection, Volunteers of America, Westward Heights, Boys & Girls Club of Riverton, Community Entry Services, Christian Food Storehouse, Help for Health Hospice, and Riverton Kiwanis.
“This day concentrates and magnifies the efforts of our wonderful employees, who give generously to the places where they live and work,” said Kevin Riley, president and CEO of First Interstate BancSystem, Inc. “We are honored to celebrate the power of community with our neighbors today.”
The overarching philanthropic focus for this year’s Volunteer Day is anchored in combating poverty, hunger and homelessness. However, employees are encouraged to select service projects that cater to the specific needs of their local communities.
