The North Carolina Bankers Association has established the NCBA Hurricane Florence Relief Fund through the NCBA Foundation to benefit bank employees who have suffered damage to their homes, cars and personal property in connection with Hurricane Florence.
“Many bank employees are suffering just like their customers and neighbors. The sooner they are able to sort out their personal situations, the better they will be able to focus on the needs of bank customers and communities,” said NCBA president & CEO Peter Gwaltney.
The NCBA is encouraging banks in North Carolina and across the country to support this initiative in addition to the contributions they are making to charitable organizations involved in Hurricane Florence recovery and relief efforts. To date, NCBA members have pledged or contributed nearly $6 million to non-profit organizations working in hurricane affected areas.
A committee of retired bankers led by NCBA past chairman and former CEO of Cornerstone Bank in Wilson, Mark Holmes, will oversee and administer the application and disbursement process.
