Liberty Savings Bank continues its strong support of South Sarasota County Habitat for Humanity. On Saturday, March 28th volunteers from three Liberty Savings Bank offices assisted with the annual Sweet Home Habitat event. Each year Habitat for Humanity hosts a silent and live auction that helps fund their mission all year long.
Donors were able to bid on items and experiences donated by local businesses. Also, they were able to “bid” on the construction material required to build homes in Sarasota. Everything from yards of concrete to doors and windows were bid on by donors at the Sweet Home Habitat event. The generosity of all the attendees provided the funding necessary to keep up Habitat’s good work in the community.
Liberty Savings Bank volunteers manned the checkout table, totaling successful bids and collecting donations from the many donors. Danielle Bachar, Financial Center Manager at the Square South Financial Center, organized the Liberty volunteers for the event. She was assisted by Sandy Perrine, Financial Center Manager II from the Jacaranda Office, Samantha Martin, Financial Center Supervisor, and Josie Fleming, Customer Service Representative.
Liberty Savings Bank recently continued its commitment to the local community and to Habitat for Humanity. After donating equipment and money earlier this year to help Habitat for Humanity reach its goals, now volunteers from Liberty Savings Bank donated their time to support the Habitat for Humanity South County Women's Build 2014. This year’s build continues a long tradition of Habitat Sarasota working to improve the lives of Sarasota County residents. Since 1985 Habitat Sarasota has built more than 200 homes in Sarasota County, greatly improving the lives of hundreds in the process.
Volunteers learned how to hang sheet rock and completed 90% of the ceilings for this home on Thursday Oct. 9th 2014 along with a skilled team of Habitat volunteers.
Danielle Bachar, Financial Center Manager at the Square South Financial Center, had nothing but praise for Habitat for Humanity, “What Habitat does for the community is admirable; we were thrilled to be a part of this project. What a truly wonderful organization to work hand in hand with!”
Liberty Savings Bank was proud to be a sponsor of the 2014 MidTown Manatee Mix & Mingle. The Mix & Mingle brings together businesses and residents from outside the MidTown Manatee area to show off the great businesses available in MidTown Manatee.
Lauren A Fuller, Financial Center Manager II, organized Liberty Savings Bank sponsorship of the event. She was on hand to participate in the Speed Networking theme for the evening. A wide variety of businesses participated in the event making it a great success. Also participating at the event was Barbara Cain from our Commercial Loan division. She was there to help spread the word about Liberty Savings Bank great commercial lending products and services.
The 3rd Annual MidTown Manatee Mix & Mingle was a great success at promoting growth of the MidTown area. Businesses and the public all enjoyed great food and entertainment while getting to know all the opportunities the MidTown area has to offer. Liberty Savings Bank was proud to help sponsor the event and looks forward to many more to come.
As part of Liberty Savings Bank commitment to serving our local communities we have recently donated 9 computers and 13 monitors, as well as keyboards and mice to Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Denver, Colorado. Along with the donation of computer equipment Liberty Savings Bank was pleased to provide an additional $1000 to the church.
Originally established in 1936, Our Lady of Guadalupe Church maintains a special mission for Latino immigrants in the Denver area. Under the leadership of the Theatine Fathers, Our Lady of Guadalupe Church is dedicated to serving their community. Liberty Savings Bank is proud to support such a long serving and dedicated charity.
With this donation of equipment and money Our Lady of Guadalupe Church will be able to further aid immigrants and residents in the Denver, Colorado area.
In June, 2014, Liberty Savings Bank donated 43 personal computers and monitors along with $4,500 to benefit the low to moderate income partner families served by Habitat For Humanity of South Sarasota.
Habitat for Humanity South Sarasota Co., Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to building a better community, one house at a time.
Habitat for Humanity offers the dream of home ownership to those who would otherwise not be able to afford a home of their own. The new homeowners actually help to build the house alongside many dedicated volunteers in the community. Habitat sells the house to the homeowner at cost and finances the mortgage at zero interest.
Habitat provides capital, not charity. It creates a stable environment for children, safe and communal neighborhoods that work and grow together. Local churches, businesses, individuals, foundations and civic organizations work together in our community to make this dream come true.
