Supporting our communities has been part of how we define our company since the 1800's, when a lone bookkeeper, Charles Q. Harris, single-handedly kept our bank open to serve customers and distribute relief funds during the Yellow Fever epidemic in Memphis.
We renew that tradition each day by encouraging employees to invest in our communities by donating time, talent and professional expertise to nonprofit organizations. Our volunteer program, Here for Good, emphasizes our commitment to strengthening our communities, as we have for more than 150 years.

David Dodson, Bugles Across America
Senior Commercial Credit Review Officer, David Dodson, volunteers more than 250 hours annually with Bugles Across America. David, who had no previous musical background, was inspired to learn to sound Taps as a way to provide proper closure to grieving families who lost their dedicated veterans.
Though most of his volunteer work with the organization has been recruiting solid musicians to perform the live rendering of Taps in the Memphis and Mid-South area, he has participated in several funeral services.
“I feel it is important to honor all veterans with Live Taps,” Dodson said. “I am a United States Air Force veteran myself. All veterans wrote a blank check to our nation for an amount up to and including his or her life. Knowing that I help families find closure with the rendering of Live Taps as the final salute to their loved one’s service to our great nation is very rewarding. It is an honor to continue serving with Bugles Across America.”
