The Summit In The Community
We are immensely proud of the level at which our employees volunteer on behalf of local charitable efforts. Last year, through leadership positions as well as hands-on work, our employees volunteered a total of approximately 6,500 hours. It’s an astonishing number, but not surprising. With every member interaction, our employees put this giving spirit into action.
