Truist Chairman and CEO Bill Rogers: "What Can You Do to Serve, and Not Just Live in, Your Own Community?"

One of my core beliefs is that you should serve your community, not just live in it.

One organization I give my time—and my heart—to is the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. It’s a nonprofit that empowers young people to stay on track to graduate from high school, make healthy choices, and grow up to be responsible and caring adults.

You’ll find plenty of studies that show the benefits of volunteering, but I can tell you firsthand that when I give my time, it increases my sense of purpose. It feels great to help change things from the ground up.

That’s why at Truist we provide our teammates paid time off to volunteer for the causes that matter to them. After all, we live, work, and raise families in our communities. And we want those communities to thrive.

This is #NationalVolunteerMonth, and it’s a good time to ask yourself where in your community you can change things from the ground up. What can you do to serve, and not just live in, your own community? You’ll help others, and you’ll help yourself too. #TruistTogether
