Thanking Health Care Heroes in the Tri-Cities: Regions Bank Teams Share the Good
Annual program by Regions offers appreciation for people making a positive difference.
TRI-CITIES, Tenn.– (Sept. 2, 2020) – Regions Bank today announced its annual Share the Good program will serve health care workers in the Tri-Cities area who are helping patients and families impacted by COVID-19.
Each year, Share the GoodSM provides an opportunity for Regions associates to offer thanks to people who are supporting our communities. Activities are taking place all this week in cities across the Southeast, Midwest and Texas.
In Gray, Tenn., Regions team members delivered box lunches to 65 Frontier Health associates to recognize their selfless service during the novel coronavirus. Frontier Health provides a host of behavioral health services, including treatment for mental health, substance abuse, recovery and vocational rehabilitation and developmental and intellectual disabilities services.
“Since the pandemic began, Regions Bank has provided significant financial support to health care organizations and other community partners. Share the Good is a way we can follow up as individual Regions associates to offer our personal appreciation for the men and women serving our communities,” said David Crockett, Tri-Cities market executive for Regions. “We are grateful to all members of the medical community who are providing treatment, care and support for patients and families during this extremely difficult time.”
Regions will share highlights from this week’s activities through @RegionsNews on Twitter.
This is the 11th year Regions has organized Share the Good. In previous years, the program has delivered classroom materials for teachers, school supplies for students, snacks and meals for fire departments, and more.
By focusing the 2020 Share the Good program on health care workers, Regions is building on its commitment to help communities impacted by COVID-19. Since this spring, Regions Bank and the nonprofit Regions Foundation have allocated more than $3 million to COVID-19 recovery needs. Additional funding will be issued to nonprofits and other organizations in the coming months as part of a broader, $5 million coronavirus-recovery commitment.
