At ABA’s Annual Convention, the American Bankers Association unveiled a new video spotlighting how bankers pitched in and responded to the wave of devastating hurricanes that hit Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico this fall.
In Texas, the six-minute video spotlights the efforts of one community Bank in Rockport, where Hurricane Harvey made landfall. It also showcases a commercial lender working as a first responder in the Houston area, bank support for small business recovery and food relief, and even a Pennsylvania bank whose employees personally delivered a truckload of supplies.
Meanwhile, in Florida, the video shows how a community bank helped business customers flooded by Hurricane Irma run payroll over the bank’s systems, how a regional bank deployed a mobile branch to open right away and how a community bank provided much-needed supplies to a local nonprofit.
ABA continues to urge bankers to join the association and its employees in supporting the ongoing recovery from hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria.
