As a dedicated community partner, SBT responds to needs in our community. In addition to offering financial support and specifically designed accounts to help organizations and programs that provide valuable community services, SBT sponsors family-oriented entertainment and activities throughout the year, supports programs that foster an appreciation of the arts, and directly benefits families in need through companywide food and toy drives.
SBT officers and employees are involved in the community, volunteering their time with local service organizations and clubs, coaching youth sports, and serving on the boards of directors of area schools, hospitals, community groups, and other organizations.
