Community Involvement

Palmetto Citizens exists to provide more than financial services, we also look beyond our walls to our local community. This philosophy leads us to support worthwhile charitable and social causes.

Proud to Serve!

Locally Invested

We are proud to help many local charities, schools and other organizations in a variety of ways, including volunteer service and monetary donations.

Harvest Hope Food Bank – In November, we collected monetary and non-perishable food donations for Harvest Hope, and the Share Your Holiday Food Drive. With the generosity of our members and staff, along with a corporate donation, we were proud to present a donation of $25,385 to Harvest Hope! Since 2002, we have been able to donate over $158,500 and over 45,000 pounds of food.

Breast Cancer Centers - In October, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we made donations of $10,000 on behalf of our members and staff to each of our local Breast Centers at Prisma Health and Lexington Medical Center.

Higher Education Scholarship Program - Palmetto Citizens is offering students an opportunity to apply for one of twenty $1,000 higher education scholarships. Applications will be accepted online through February 1, 2022.

Free Document Shredding - We continue to help keep information out of the hands of identity thieves by hosting a series of no cost shredding days. Since 2008, we’ve helped consumers shred nearly 725 tons of personal information.
