Renasant employees recently volunteered at the Corners Outreach summer camp program in Norcross, GA. The program began in 2010, with the goal to provide two months of reading skills during the summer break. Every high school dropout costs Georgia taxpayers approximately $292,000. The summer camp allows weekly volunteer groups to connect with children in fun, engaging ways such as games, crafts, and Bible time while concentrating on education.
Employees from Johns Creek, Duluth and Norcross branch offices were delighted to participate by reading and teaching the importance of saving money and making wise spending decisions. Each child received a piggy bank to reinforce the idea of saving money for the future.
The mission of Corners Outreach is to provide meaningful connections which are the building blocks in a child’s life. The focus is to impact the value of education and become a catalyst for a 100% graduation rate for students as well as improving future career opportunities for underemployed parents.
Participants from the bank included: Ken Davis- President, Bonnie Boling-Retail Administrator, Laura Rosser-Compliance, Abbe Poline-Branch Manager, Mary Grace Deese-Branch Manager, Priscilla Priez-Personal Banker, and Patricia Panagopoulos-Assistant.
