In the times of deep recession when many banks in US are compelled to cut down their operational expenditure, which may even include community service, reports show that First National Bank of Pasco's capital far exceeds the required regulatory levels, which gives them the staying power required to support their customers and community.
The First National Bank of Pasco is not only growing, but also expected to securely carry on their business without having to be bailed out in current crisis situation for banking sector throughout US.
"When a bank fails, it is a blemish on its community and lowers confidence in the financial system...which only hurts businesses in that area," said Robert Sumner, President of First National Bank of Pasco. "We have a responsibility to support our community so our businesses and organizations can grow, expand and prosper."
The First National Bank of Pasco is actively participating in its corporate social responsibility of community service.
