MASON CITY, Iowa- Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds made a stop in Mason City on Tuesday to recognize First Citizens bank for its participation in the “Give Back Iowa” challenge.
Each year, businesses are encouraged to get their employees excited about volunteerism and log the hours they volunteer in their community for the months of April and May.
For the third year in a row, First Citizens Bank is being honored for its efforts. Those with the bank say this year they recorded 2,335.9 hours volunteered, an increase from years previous.
According to the Governor’s Office, they aren’t alone in racking up volunteer hours. Across the state, 23 groups joined the challenge for a total of 83,000 volunteer hours. Governor Reynolds says they hope First Citizens Banks efforts will encourage more businesses to volunteer next year.
“Hopefully them winning three years in a row and laying down the gauntlet will encourage other business owners to get out and let their employees volunteer,” said Gov. Reynolds.
Those with First Citizens Bank say they will log their hours next year, but will not be participating in the challenge so that another company can step up and be recognized.
