In celebration of the HomeTrust Bank 90th anniversary, the bank is continuing its commitment to the communities it serves by investing in local organizations.
Through the 90k for 90th campaign, HomeTrust has donated $90,000 during the month of May to community organizations that assist with affordable housing, financial literacy, community enrichment, and culture.
The public assisted in the selection process by voting on the HomeTrust Bank Facebook page to determine the distribution of the $90k in gifts across North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.
The community has spoken, and these are the winners for the 90k for 90th Community Support contest:
