At Dream First Bank, our mission is to help build up our thriving community. That’s why we jump at any chance to lend a helping hand to those who might need a boost and why we are so proud of our #RiseUp4Families program.
The Story Behind #RiseUp4Families
Years ago, this program began with modest ambitions. Initially, it was all about assisting a coworker who found themselves in the hospital battling COVID-19 and in need of support. Soon after, our focus shifted to aiding another colleague whose spouse faced the devastating challenge of a late-stage cancer diagnosis.
Time and again, our employees would rally around stories of individuals and families in need of that extra boost. As more team members saw the tangible difference their contributions made, a spark ignited within our community. The concept of a bank-wide approach to offering this level of support began to take shape. From these collective efforts, the #RiseUp4Families initiative came to life.
Making a Difference with #RiseUp4Families
From the moment it was conceived, #RiseUp4Families has been all about elevating our community. The project has reached out and touched lives in numerous ways, including:
- Helping various families whose loved ones are fighting cancer
- Supporting a mother who had to remain near her child during an extended hospital stay
- Assisting individuals who found themselves in unexpected hospital stays and in need of financial assistance
At Dream First Bank, we understand that community banking isn't just a business; it's a platform to enact positive change right in our backyard. That's why, in addition to aiding these families, we're always on the hunt for opportunities that can create meaningful, large-scale benefits for our community. We are exceptionally proud of our employees. Although the project is still in its infancy, #RiseUp4Families continues to have uplifting impacts across our community.
