After opening its first branch in the Lindale area this past spring, Austin Bank immediately became an important part of the community by donating more than $3,000 to the Lindale ISD Education Foundation, said spokesperson Lauren Loyless.
From its opening to the end of June, Austin Bank donated $25 to the foundation for each $25 deposit in a customer’s checking account.
“The Education Foundation is excited for the growth of Austin Bank in Lindale, and we are honored that they dove head first into our community by giving back to the education of our kids,” said Lindale ISD Education Foundation President Vickie Frazier. “It is small town businesses like this that are making a big impact on the successful cultivation of our future leaders.”
Officials with the bank as well as members of the foundation gathered this past week for a check donation ceremony where $3,575 was given to the foundation.
“It is a goal of Austin Bank to build a strong connection between the bank and the communities we serve,” said Austin Bank Senior Vice President Patty Steelman.
“As a new member of Lindale, choosing Lindale ISD Education Foundation as the recipient of our grand opening promotion was a perfect fit,” commented Chairman of the Board Jeff Austin, Jr. “It is our promise to be a partner and a friend, to help create a better everyday life for our communities, families and businesses.”
