Client Story: A Continuing Partnership to Help Our Community
When the Southeast chapter of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America hit the start of the pandemic, they had many of the same questions that the rest of the world had. When it came to financial questions, they turned to Atlantic Union Bank (AUB).
With help securing a Small Business Administration (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loan, they knew to come straight to AUB. “When COVID-19 struck, Atlantic Union Bank was there for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast Virginia,” recalls Adrianna Rivera, Chief Development Officer. “They walked us through the PPP process and helped us get the loan that enabled our doors to stay open so we could continue providing critical services for families in the area.”
Alvin Payne, the relationship manager for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast Virginia provided the personal attention needed to help this organization continue its services throughout the pandemic. These organizations are pillars of the communities, and the Hampton Roads chapter has been providing young people with educational and fitness initiatives, leadership training and recreation since 1919. And working with a community-focused bank helps them meet their goals. Says Ms. Rivera, “Alvin makes us his priority. He’s the kind of person that cares about his community and that means a lot.”
