TRB Wins Award
Texas Regional Bank (TRB) was the recipient of the 2017 Best of Community Banking “Golden Eagle Award” at the Independent Bankers Association of Texas 43rd Annual Convention this week. The award recognizes TRB’s strong partnership with Habitat for Humanity of the Rio Grande Valley and its dedication to helping communities it serves.
“We are very proud of our outstanding team who made this award possible,” said Michael Scaief, Chairman of Texas Regional Bank.“They truly put their hearts into this relationship, to make a difference in people’s lives.”
Over the past year, TRB set a goal of strengthening its relationship with Habitat for Humanity. From a pledge of $30,000 to Habitat for Humanity of the Rio Grande Valley at the close of 2015, TRB has established a long-lasting relationship with this nonprofit organization that offers a “hand up” and not a “hand out” to worthy families in Hidalgo and Cameron Counties.TRB’s community service includes providing financial support through sponsorships, manpower through sweat equity volunteerism, knowledge by serving on Habitat’s family selection committee, ongoing financial education to new homeowners, and a community development loan of $250,000 to support both affordable housing rehabilitation and construction of new homes.
“The best part is, at the end of the day, two families have homes they now call their own,” said Paul Moxley, President and CEO. “TRB will continue helping the communities it serves. Through the growing partnership with Habitat for Humanity of the Rio Grande Valley, TRB has the opportunity to make an impact, one nail, one home and one dream at a time.”
