Security State Bank was out and about this year at local stock shows to participate as a buyer in several counties. SSB believes in the importance of helping our youth develop life skills that they will use as adults as well as supporting all of the hard work that these kids put into their 4H and FFA projects. This year, as in several years past, SSB was an active buyer in Atascosa, Frio and Medina County! Several officers from different bank locations attended the various sales to show their support!
Employees at Security State Bank’s Main Office in Pearsall, bought Christmas presents for 33 CASA children this year. CASA is short for Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children. The children in this program are victims of neglect and/or abuse & are appointed a CASA volunteer to represent their best interest. The volunteers also help the children feel safe and do their best to find these children permanent homes where they have the opportunity to thrive. Thanks to the donations from SSB employees, 33 children who have already suffered so much, will have a much better Christmas! Pictured L-R are SSB employees, Derek Smith, Andra Shaw, SSB President Mike Wilson, Sarah Martinez, Debbie Cox, Emily Briscoe, & Annie Garcia.
