First Bank is “Grateful” for Relationship with HBF

The mission of HBF is building independence, providing opportunities and elevating lives for those who live with disabilities. This endeavor requires an extensive network of friends, volunteers, and financial contributions. One way HBF can continue to provide these services is with the help of our Annual Supporters such as Silver Level Supporter, FirstBank.

As Colorado’s largest privately-held and locally-owned bank, FirstBank’s philosophy is simple: do what’s right for customers, our communities, and employees, and good things will happen.

FirstBank continues to be a strong supporter of HBF and the immensely impactful work they do in our communities. We were thrilled to participate in yet another successful Blitz Build this year by providing a crew of bankers. We were also proud to support HBF as their banking partner during the turbulent times of the pandemic. It is times like these when strong and longstanding relationships become even more important. And we are grateful to have the relationship we do between FirstBank and HBF.” – Derek Longwell, Executive Vice President – Southeast

Banking for Good

FirstBank has been involved with HBF for many years. In part because HBF’s mission aligns so well with their “Banking For Good” philosophy, and in part because HBF staff and board are great people to be around. The work being done by HBF is so important to clients, their families, friends and our communities as a whole. Every year for Blitz Build, FirstBank has far more “unskilled” bankers that want to build ramps than we have crew spaces available. This is a testament to the fact that people want to be a part of the great work HBF does. FirstBank looks forward to continuing the long-standing partnership with HBF!

Each year Home Builders Foundation assembles builders, contractors, remodelers, trades and volunteers to execute Blitz Build. Blitz Build mobilizes 200+ volunteers to complete ramps for individuals across metro Denver in this incredible 3-day event.

There are many ways to get involved with HBF, from Annual Supporter to Blitz Build. Your organization can join FirstBank in elevating the lives of individuals who need it most! Find out how to become an Annual Supporter by contacting Lauren Knudsen.
