    Raise All Boats: Danny Kelly with Hometown Bank

    We're continuing our theme around banking with a purpose...what does community involvement really look like? What are some cool stories from community banks that are affecting real change in their local communities?

    Danny Kelly is the CEO of Hometown Bank in Oneonta, AL. You may remember him from a previous Main Street Banking episode and their really cool use of YouTube.

    Well, being a subscriber, I came across a video about their community partnerships and the projects that they are working on. It's really powerful stuff.

    You can watch the video here https://youtu.be/74wWWFsQxXA?si=aHMfReSVZHYz7XAD

    The Giving Cup: Community Banking With A Purpose

    The Giving Cup: Community Banking With A Purpose

    Sharon Anderson is the CEO/President of Williamstown Bank in Williamstown WV. In February of 2020, they implemented a community-driven coffee business similar to what you have seen on this podcast before and, to date, have nearly raised $50,000 that goes directly to charities in the local community. As someone who has watched this from Memphis, it is truly one of those "feel good" stories...but more than that (and to borrow Williamstown Bank's marketing) it's what banking can be.
