This money, along with other monies raised from the community, went to help the families of police officers affected by Hurricane Katrina. There were 32 police officers from the Las Vegas Police Department who went to this area following the devastation caused by this horrible natural disaster. "The holidays have become a special time of year for the Bank and our employees, but this year has been extra special because of the expanded outreach we were able to provide to needy families both in Nevada and in Louisiana," said Business Bank President and CEO John Guedry. "We are very fortunate to live in a prosperous area of the country, and we recognize the responsibility we have to help make our communities and country be the best place to live and work." Guedry added that while the holidays tend to attract more attention for community giving programs, philanthropic outreach should be a part of every company's corporate culture throughout the year. The Bank and its employees were able to purchase every item on the wish lists for its adopted families in Nevada, which included lots of toys for the kids such as bikes, Gameboys and dolls, as well as plenty of clothes, food and gift cards. What began six years ago with just two nonprofit groups in the Las Vegas and Carson City areas has now grown to six cities and four nonprofit groups throughout Nevada. During the past year, the Bank has opened or expanded its branch operations in Reno, Minden, and North Las Vegas. Business Bank's philanthropic outreach for the year has reached record levels in monetary donations, in-kind giving and volunteer support. The Bank has donated approximately $30,000 to qualified nonprofit organizations throughout Nevada, provided in-kind support of more than $5,000 to various community groups, and over 12,000 hours of volunteer support to numerous worthy causes. The Bank contributes financial, in-kind and volunteer assistance to nonprofit institutions and organizations that enhance the quality of life and promote public interest where the company conducts its business.
