1st Financial employees served Connections by organizing clothing donations in their Dress for Success department.
Trina Simms, a 1st Financial employee who spent the day volunteering at Connections to Success said, “I love volunteering for Connections to Success. I was given the pleasure of dressing someone for a job interview. It felt good knowing I was able to be a part of that journey with them and helped give them the confidence they needed to achieve their own success.”
1st Financial employees also participated in mock interviews with the graduates of the Connections to Success workforce readiness program. This allowed them the opportunity to connect with the graduates and help them get ready for the next phase in their lives through tips and guidance on how to be best prepared for a job interview.
