Stronger Together

The world looks different, but our commitment to serving the communities in which we operate is at the heart of who we are, and that drive has never been stronger. Here are a few recent examples of the Allegiance Way in action.

COVID-19 Support

  • Farm to Neighborhoods: Allegiance Bank is proud to support the organization Farm to Neighborhoods, which brings people together by getting fresh vegetables into the community. We recently partnered with the organization, along with Brothers Produce and Holman Street Baptist Church to provide more than 300 Third Ward families with food, face masks and hand sanitizer. The event was held to remember and honor the legacy of Pastor Manson B. Johnson.
  • Southeast Texas Food Bank: In support of the organization’s mission to lead the fight against hunger in Southeast Texas, we’ve given $10,000 for COVID-19 Relief Efforts.
  • United Way of Beaumont and North Jefferson County: In addition to a Corporate Bank Sponsorship, Allegiance Bank’s Fair Banking Officer Marcus Vasquez is serving on the United Way’s Allocation’s Committee to conduct virtual interviews with other non-profit organizations who are seeking funding during this time.
  • Southern Smoke Foundation: To support the food and beverage industry, we are partnering with the Southern Smoke Foundation, which provides financial assistance directly to employees in the food and beverage industry during times of crisis and emergencies. As the official bank sponsor of the organization, Allegiance has provided a $10,000 grant to support pandemic efforts. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, Southern Smoke has provided over one million dollars in grants to food and beverage industry individuals throughout the country.

Health Initiatives

$202,564 raised! Last month Allegiance Banker Linda Humphries chaired the American Heart Association North Houston Go Red for Women celebration. The virtual event goal was surpassed, and funds will go toward vital research and community awareness initiatives, including a focus on the Don’t Die of Doubt campaign, urging individuals to dial 911 during medical emergencies despite uncertainty surrounding COVID-19. We are proud to partner with an organization that is doing such important work in our communities.

Affordable Housing

Legacy Community Development Corporation: We are grateful to partner with the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas to support the Legacy Community Development Corporation with a $21,000 grant through the Partnership Grant Program. “We are very thankful for the support that the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas has provided to the communities we serve during this difficult period. The city of Port Arthur has been severely impacted over the past few years by the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey and Tropical Storm Imelda. In addition, the city is now feeling the impact caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Allegiance Bank is committed to supporting the recovery efforts in Port Arthur and we are thankful for organizations such as Legacy CDC as they have worked diligently to create new affordable housing in Jefferson County.” – Marcus A. Vasquez, VP and Fair Banking Officer, Allegiance Bank.

 

Credit Coalition: Allegiance Bank is proud to also partner with Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas to provide over $34,000 to the Credit Coalition, which provides HUD-approved credit counseling and homebuyer education classes in Houston and Beaumont. Allegiance Bank VP, CRA and Fair Lending Officer Rickey Jimenez, who serves as Treasurer on the Credit Coalition board, notes, “They provide a critical service to our community. We are happy to support their efforts to help aspiring homeowners as well as existing homeowners who are struggling to remain in their homes.”

 

Company Culture

Better Business Bureau: We are grateful to be recognized as a 2020 Better Business Bureau Awards for Excellence Winner for excellence and quality in the workplace. The awards luncheon will be held later this fall, and will benefit the BBB Education Foundation whose mission is to educate and protect young and older adults from scams and fraudulent business practices.

Texas Best Places to Work: Allegiance Bank is proud to be named one of the 100 Best Companies to Work for in Texas. In collaboration with the Texas Association of Business, Texas SHRM, Best Companies Group and Texas Monthly, this program was designed to recognize the best employers in the state, the ones that  make it a priority to create better workplaces for their employees. The list of the 100 Best Companies to Work for in Texas names companies with the best practices among Texas employers; Allegiance Bank ranked number 18 in the large business category.

 

Financial Education

We are committed to increasing financial literacy in the communities we serve. Through our partnership with EVERFI, we are thankful for the opportunity to provide 149 Houston ISD students and 715 adults with access to financial education tools so far this year.
