Count Down to Hands of Hope

Hands of Hope Selection 2021

At WSB, we take charitable giving seriously. That’s why our Hands of Hope giving program includes 3 full rounds of review and evaluation of each and every application that has been submitted for our 2021 giving season. No stone is left unturned as each application is carefully vetted to ensure that the organization is working on behalf of the low to moderate income populations within the markets we serve. Ultimately, the decision is made by our front-line team members who each place a vote for the charity and project of their choice.

More than 50 local charities submitted applications in the hopes of being selected as one of our honored Hands of Hope recipients. Each of the winning organizations receives an extensive media package and gift of $20,000.00 cash to assist them in fulfilling their mission.
