Trustmark National Bank is taking time to invest in their community. Trustmark employees were hard at work at Northwest Middle School in Meridian Wednesday.
Trustmark vice-president, Joyce Neal, said, "We are hear at Northwest Middle School giving back to the community. There were needs in the school and we are here to fulfill some of those needs."
According to Will Carpenter, one of the volunteers, this is a great opportunity to share a little of yourself with those around you and in your local schools.
The investment that these volunteers are making is not going unnoticed. Jacoby Bodley a 6th grader at Northwest said, "This is a good example for me, because it makes me just want to get out and do something for myself, like for other people too."
The volunteer work that Trustmark employees are doing at Northwest Middle School is not the only volunteer work they will be doing. Throughout the entire month of June, Trustmark employees will be found throughout their community volunteering.
"We have other projects that we are going to be doing for the schools here in Meridian," said Neal. "School will be getting out but we're always out there giving back."
The students said they are grateful for the work Trustmark has done at their school.
