Republic Bank & Trust Company has launched the Republic Bank We CARE Awards to recognize local companies and their employees who are doing their part to care for the community.
The Award is meant to recognize and publicly congratulate companies who stress the four elements contained in the CARE name itself – Community Activity Recognition Enterprise.
Companies will be judged on how they encourage employees to become involved in volunteer activities either during or after work hours such as tutoring, mentoring, or coaching a youth sports activity. Also, companies will be evaluated on how they support community-based initiatives through fundraising activities such as benefit walks, raffles, and bake sales.
The Republic Bank We CARE Awards are open to all for-profit and non-profit companies, associations, and government agencies.
Nominated companies are grouped in three categories, by size of business (small 1-100; medium 101-500; and large 501 and above). One award will be given in each category. Winning companies will be featured on WAVE-TV and will receive a unique glass award at a special ceremony this fall.
