TCM Bank also presented a $10,000 check to Habitat Hillsborough
TEMPLE TERRACE, FL, May 17, 2018 – Community bank representatives spent Wednesday morning rolling paint on the walls of a Temple Terrace home built by more than 150 Habitat for Humanity “Women Build” volunteers. In honor of TCM Bank’s second year as a Gold Hammer sponsor of Habitat Hillsborough’s Women Build, Independent Community Bankers of America® President and CEO Rebeca Romero Rainey, ICBA Bancard® President and CEO Tina Giorgio and Tampa-based TCM Bank, N.A.® President and CEO Damon Moorer were on the build site May 16th. Rainey and Giorgio flew in from Washington, D.C. to volunteer with the Tampa team and present a $10,000 donation to Habitat Hillsborough CEO Tina Swain.
Habitat Hillsborough’s Women Build is an eight-week home construction event involving more than 150 women community volunteers that has been underway since April 7th. The home, which is being built for Tangerla Burton and her four sons, will be completed by June 2nd. In addition to the 11-member team painting interior walls, volunteers from TCM Bank have helped with framing and installing ceilings since the construction began.
“Community banks have a tradition of giving back in our communities and TCM Bank is privileged to partner with an organization that shares the same values,” said Moorer. “We’re honored to be included in such a worthwhile effort and to help deserving families realize their homeownership aspirations.”
“Our Women Build program empowers women of all skill levels to volunteer to help us build an affordable, secure home that will make a life-changing impact on the family we’re building for,” said Swain. “We are extremely grateful for corporate partners like TCM Bank. Their sponsorship and volunteer support not only help offset construction costs, but it also brings our community together in support of affordable housing solutions that help stabilize and strengthen local families.”
A Gold Hammer sponsor for the inaugural Habitat Hillsborough Women Build in 2017, TCM Bank renewed their sponsorship and provided increased volunteer support for this year’s build event. In June, TCM Bank executives will also participate in the dedication ceremony for the home when the keys will be presented to the Burton family.
