SouthStar Bank pledges up to $25k in Franklin Relief Funds

SouthStar Bank has opened an account dedicated to relief efforts for the Franklin tornado and pledges to match contributions up to $25,000.

Many of the Bank’s team members reside in Franklin and have seen firsthand the tragedy of the situation. “It’s sad to see the destruction, but I’m more proud every day to live in Franklin. Everyone is coming out to help where they can,” says Franklin Branch Executive Justen Salcido.

The SouthStar Bank Board of Directors, led by Chairman Paris Schindler of Houston, came together and agreed that the bank would make a contribution for the benefit of the community, and hope that the match incentive will help to raise $50,000 in relief efforts. Funds will remain within the local community to best serve those affected.
