First Bank employees at all Missouri (46) and Illinois branches (20), as well as employees from First Bank’s Hazelwood, Missouri Operation Center helped raise $9,558 in February as part of the American Heart Association’s “Red Hearts” Campaign.
“We want to thank our employees, customers and everyone in their respective communities who participated in this important campaign,” said Joe Ambrose, First Bank President, St. Louis Region, who helped coordinate the initiative with the American Heart Association. “Their commitment was great in fighting two of this country’s biggest killers – heart disease and stroke.”
