In March, Truist Chairman & CEO Bill Rogers joined more than 30 teammates for a day of service at the Marti Huizenga Boys & Girls Club in Hollywood, Florida. The Truist team came together to refresh and reinvigorate the club space, deliver financial education curriculum to local children, and donate 250 packages of school supplies and 250 weekend snack packs to support the club’s needs. The local community that the Boys & Girls Club supports is impacted by food insecurity and needs assistance in many areas.
“Thank you to our Truist teammates for delivering on our purpose to inspire and build better lives and communities by equipping these students with the knowledge they need to make sound financial decisions, creating this beautiful club space for learning and play, and helping with other key needs. We were so inspired by the commitment and energy of these students who are our next generation of leaders. I look forward to continuing this impactful work throughout our communities,” Rogers said.
This volunteer event was made possible through the company’s sponsorship of City Year, a national nonprofit that brings young adults together for a year of community service. This year, Truist is sponsoring eight City Year sites to work collaboratively to meet community needs and build educational equity through volunteer events. Additionally, Truist is working with City Year’s Care Force division to create environments where students and young adults can thrive – such as the wonderful club space at this Boys & Girls Club.
