The Growing Good Initiatives

The past few months have been full of challenges, but they've also helped us to see our blessings. At First Farmers, we're blessed to be part of so many wonderful communities, full of compassionate people and organizations. Our friends and neighbors have been an inspiration to us, and that, along with the long cherished values that have seen us through 135 years of service, led to the development of our Growing Good initiatives.

Community Foundation Initiative

We recognize that our local community foundations are an exceptional conduit to provide direct aid to the most critical areas of need.  They maintain a cohesive local network of resources and partners to maximize effectiveness and efficiency. We will work directly with the foundations in our market area to help meet the needs of the local community and are pledging $75,000 to fund these efforts.

In this Together Initiative

The staff at our local branches know their communities, and they know those communities are full of heroes. They wanted to recognize and encourage the people in their communities, and together, they came up with a plan. Every week for 6 weeks, branches will be delivering lunches, donating food, or reaching out in some way to help and to say thank you to our local heroes.
