TRIUMPH BANK CONTINUES ITS SUPPORT TO PROTECT ELDERLY VETERANS
For the second year in a row, Triumph Bank has committed to support the Senior Housing Crime Prevention Foundation (SHCPF) Senior Crimestoppers program to help protect elderly Veterans. On January 19 of this year, Triumph was honored to be one of the first recipients in the U.S. to receive the SHCPF Veterans Support Award for its previous commitment.
The Senior Crimestoppers program is a proprietary operation of the SHCPF, a national organization established to provide a vehicle for banks to earn CRA credit through support of nursing home residents, who are classified as low-to-moderate income individuals. It ensures that 40,000 Veterans in 160 State Veteran nursing homes live without fear of crime, abuse, neglect, hostility or deprivation of personal freedom.
“America’s servicemen and women dedicate their lives to ensuring our freedom and making our country a safer place to live. Our nation’s more than 8,000 community banks are proud to call many of these Veterans customers and serve them in cities and towns throughout Main Street America,” said Gary Teagno, president and CEO of the Services Network for the Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA). The ICBA, along with the American Bankers Association (ABA) also actively support this effort.
Because of Triumph Bank, Veterans receive specially designed personal lock boxes and an annual Time of Your Life video exhibit. In addition, each facility will receive an annual cash contribution for a Wish Comes True grant awarded to select Veterans.
“We’re not only pleased, but honored to continue our involvement in assisting this very worthwhile cause,” said Will Chase, Triumph President and CEO. “As I said when we received the Veterans Support Award almost a year ago, we hoped to offer more support and are enthusiastic to do so.”
