United Way of Siouxland Recognizes Security National Bank's Culture of Giving
August 10, 2017
Security National Bank is proud to be named United Way of Siouxland’s “Major Business of the Year,” in recognition of SNB’s philanthropic efforts in the community.
The honor was announced on July 20 at United Way’s inaugural Leadership Awards Luncheon. Senior vice presidents Joe Twidwell, Dave Holub, Ellen Prescott and Cindy Schubert were on hand to accept the honor on SNB’s behalf.
“For us, being recognized as the 2017 Major Business of the Year by the United Way of Siouxland was significant because it’s the first award of its kind, and we were the first to receive it,” Holub said. “It’s not only recognition for what we’ve done with United Way, but also for what we are as a business and who we are as employees.”
“When you employ good people and support great causes, we can make a world of difference right here at home.”
—Dave Holub, senior V.P. of marketing & human resources
Since its inception in 1964, the United Way of Siouxland has provided grants for collaborative projects and outcome-based programs that address the core needs of its communities. From feeding the hungry to protecting the abused, the United Way works together with area individuals, neighborhoods and businesses to strengthen its local impact.
“I’ve been with the bank over 47 years, and we’ve been very involved with United Way for as long as I can remember,” Holub said. “Our employees are phenomenal at supporting the cause, too — the tune of almost 100 percent participation in United Way charity drives.”
Security National Bank employees are also involved on a personal level, giving their time and talents to serving on United Way committees and boards , along with supporting other community clubs, youth teams and non-profit organizations.
“We know that the bank is only as strong as the community it serves,” Holub said. “We’re a strong community supporter because we believe in Siouxland. We want customers to move here and stay here and love being here. Culturally, we’ve always taken the stand to improve the quality of life for our community, and our employees embrace this fully, too.”
Security National Bank is one of eight businesses in Sioux City to be considered a "Corporate Champion." With this program, Security National Bank handles all the underwriting and helps cover all the overhead expenses for the United Way. This means when people from the private sector contribute, they can be assured that 100 percent of what they give is going to serve the agencies directly.
“It all comes down to the fact that we are a product of our community,” Holub said. “We hire based on heart and talent. And when you employ good people and support great causes, we can make a world of difference right here at home.”
