The collection will begin on February 1, 2013 and run until April 1, 2013. Greater Rome Bank will donate 100 percent of the proceeds from the campaign to American Red Cross Disaster Recovery.
"I am inspired by the caring hearts and generosity of the team at Greater Rome Bank. As soon as news broke of the devastation to our communities, our team instantly wanted to help" said David Lance, Greater Rome Bank President and CEO. "We are beyond fortunate that our team members' homes were not impacted by the storm, yet many of our customers were less fortunate. Our customers are a part of our GREATER family, and this is the least we can do in a time of need and crisis. We are honored to be partnering with the Red Cross to restore our great communities of Northwest Georgia."
