Continuing its long tradition of civic and community involvement, MidSouth Bank donated furniture, equipment and supplies to six nonprofit and public safety organizations throughout Natchitoches Parish.
The donations come from multiple offices and the lobby of the bank’s Royal Street loan department, a space that is being converted into a new call center. Once renovations are complete, the upper floor on Royal Street will house the bank’s community outreach development specialist, commercial lenders, a loan assistant, the lock box department and a training center.
Donated items include seven executive desks and chairs, 14 customer chairs, cherry wood filing cabinets, a glass cherry wood credenza, two-drawer filing cabinets, bookshelves, a computer desk, mini blinds, fax machines, calculators, laser jet printers, ink cartridges, lamps and wall paintings.
“MidSouth Bank is not only reinvesting in the Natchitoches market by adding a new call center, but we are also repurposing our existing resources in a way that benefits the community as a whole,” LaCarsha Babers, the bank’s community outreach development specialist, said. “These donations recognize the valuable services incredible organizations like these provide to our customers and potential customers every day.”
