HATTIESBURG, Miss.- Hancock Bank donated $10,000 to United Way of Southeast Mississippi Thursday at East Jerusalem Baptist church.
All proceeds will go towards its disaster relief efforts. Hancock Bank Mississippi President Keith Williams said, "I feel like we are at our best in tough times, and with the tornado that came through Hattiesburg, this is certainly a tough time, and we felt like that we needed to step up and make a contribution for the relief effort.”
"Every time we reach out, or anything happens in this community, I mean it is probably the most giving community around, so I am overwhelmed with gratitude, but I am not surprised" said Tracie Fowler of United Way of SEMS.
Thank bank originated in Mississippi and Williams said they will continue to give back to the community that helped their business thrive.
