This year the bank is participating in America Saves Week, an opportunity for organizations like MidSouth to promote good savings behavior and a chance for individuals to assess whether they are on the right savings track. The event is Feb. 25-March 2.
“We want to help our customers and our communities know how to save, where to save and how much to save so that they can plan for their retirement and any expenses like car repairs or a major health problem,” said LaCarsha Babers, MidSouth Bank’s Community Outreach Development Specialist.
MidSouth’s banking center managers and lenders are offering their services to nonprofit and faith-based organizations, schools and other groups to promote financial skills that will enable them to save.
To request a MidSouth Bank employee for your group or for more information, contact Babers at 1-800-213-2265.
Babers is also encouraging the public to stop by any of MidSouth’s 59 banking centers in Louisiana and Texas or call 1-800-213-2265 during America Saves Week for advice on how to get started on a path toward saving.
“It’s no secret that finances are the No. 1 cause of stress for individuals and families, which also translates into higher health care costs for companies and lower employee productivity and morale,” said Babers.
“Yet the statistics still show that fewer than 50 percent of people have a savings plan that includes specific goals for their future. MidSouth Bank aims to reverse that trend by participating in programs like America Saves Week.”
