Regions’ annual program offers appreciation for people making a positive difference.
We all had to adapt. Some more than others. COVID-19 changed the landscape for everyone.
Especially those on the front lines. While many of us stayed home and practiced social distancing, our healthcare workers stepped up to help those who are sick. It’s what the they do every day, and COVID-19 has reminded us of the crucial roles served by everyone in the medical profession.
Regions Bank recently honored nurses, medical technicians, doctors and other healthcare professionals at Jackson Hospital and Baptist East Medical Center in Montgomery as part of our annual Share the Good campaign. Launched more than a decade ago, Share the Good is a way for Regions associates to offer thanks to people who are supporting our communities. In years past, we’ve delivered cookies to firefighters, collected back-to-school supplies for students and volunteered with food banks, all to show our appreciation for others.
This year, Regions associates delivered sandwich boxes and bottled waters from Schlotzsky’s in Montgomery. It was our opportunity to provide a meal and a simple thank you to those working at our local hospitals amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
By focusing the 2020 Share the Good program on healthcare workers, Regions is building on its commitment to help communities impacted by COVID-19. Since this spring, Regions Bank and the nonprofit Regions Foundation have allocated more than $3 million to COVID-19 recovery needs. Additional funding will be issued to nonprofits and other organizations as part of a broader, $5 million coronavirus-recovery commitment.
At Regions Bank, our mission is to make life better in the communities we serve. Share the Good is our mission in motion. Our associates volunteer and regularly support nonprofit organizations like Mercy House, March of Dimes, Montgomery Aids Outreach and River Region United Way to help meet needs across our community.
As we enter the Thanksgiving season and prepare for the upcoming holidays, let’s commit to find ways to share the good with people in need – and with those who are serving others. It doesn’t take much to show someone you care. But it could make the difference that someone needs.
Regions Bank salutes health care heroes, and we are proud to support those who are working to make Montgomery the best community it can be.
