This program is another way the bank can support the community it serves. “Our seniors can often become victims of crime because they’re vulnerable, and that includes being taken advantage of financially,” Landmark Community Bank President and CEO Jake Farrell said. “The Senior Crimestoppers program is designed to shield residents from those who wish to do them harm, and we are proud to play a small role in their great work.”
Lance Diehl, First Columbia President & CEO says, “As a bank, we know firsthand the importance of ensuring the safety of consumers’ money and valuables. The physical lockboxes for Grandview will certainly enhance security; however, the power of education and information cannot be understated. Helping seniors know what to be on the lookout for in terms of scams and wrongdoing is essential and can stop potential crime before it occurs.” Michele Boone, NHA at Grandview, adds, “We are so grateful to be a part of a small town community where helping others is important and evident through First Columbia Bank reaching out to offer us this opportunity to better serve our residents.”
Volunteer State Bank is proud to sponsor the Senior Crimestoppers program in Highland Rim Terrace in Portland, TN. “This program is a way for an administrator to further enhance the lives of the residents they serve,” said Terry Rooker, president of Senior Crimestoppers. “They all work very hard to provide safe, secure, comfortable living environments and their desire to implement the program is just one more example of this. Implementing this program does not mean that the facility currently has a crime problem, but that the administrator is proactively finding a way to keep problems from occurring in the future.”
“Making a difference in the communities we serve is important to Pinnacle, and that includes ensuring that local seniors have a safe and secure living environment,” said Lisa Foley, Pinnacle’s area manager for client services in Memphis. “Luther Terrace is fortunate that its incidents have been few and far between. We are pleased to provide the resources to help deter incidents before they happen.”
“As a partner in this community and a partner in protecting our elderly, we are proud to stand together and keep our residents safe from the threat of neglect, abuse and now financial exploitation. This is a great program we are excited to help provide because it not only gives residents peace of mind, but also their families. Since 1913, Standard Bank has been a community bank that creates new and creative efforts to meet the lending and deposit needs of the communities they serve through affordable and flexible options coupled with excellent one-on-one customer service,” said Tim Zimmerman, Standard Bank President & CEO.
