Thank you to everyone who donated to our book drive!

Over the past 100 years SouthStar Bank has built a tradition of community service, supporting past generations and the generations to come. In honor of its 100th anniversary, SouthStar Bank continued this tradition by hosting a bank-wide book drive. Each branch partnered with local elementary schools to collect new books for their libraries.

With the goal of donating 100 books in honor of its 100 years, SouthStar Bank kicked off the drive by donating 500 books. Many of the books, such as “Bunny Money” and “The Lemonade War,” provided a fun way to introduce financial education to elementary students.

The book drive was met with overwhelming support from the community. Total donations exceeded 8,200 books.

“What better way to celebrate than getting the community involved! We are fortunate to be a part of such a generous network who shares in our commitment to local youth.” said SouthStar Bank President David Kapavik. “Kids are our future, and it’s our goal to support their education and growth.”

With this goal in mind, SouthStar Bank is continuing the celebration by offering $100 scholarship bonuses to each new youth savings account opened through September 30.
