Helping Hands in Our Community...
For this special #Gift2Giving story, CSB Assistant Vice President, Rachael Crane tells us about how her donation along with two other CSB employee donations (Marion Myers and Nicole Kurhajec) were combined to give back to the Burlington Fire Department. It’s a local organization that has given so much back to her community and her family and it’s a unique story you will not want to miss!

Land of the Free, Because of the Brave...
When the staff at CSB were told about the #Gift2Giving Campaign, I immediately knew where I wanted my donation to go. For a majority of my life, I’ve been surrounded by individuals who have dedicates so much… not just for me, but for our entire country. While I don’t understand the sacrifice many of our armed forces and veterans have endured on a personal level, I am able to understand it through the eyes of my own brother who has been serving in the US Navy for almost 16 years.
I have always looked up to him, and he makes me proud of everything he has done and continues to do. This is why I have chosen my donation to help the true heroes of America by donating to American Legion Bixby Hansen Post 171. I’ve been to many events at this local post and my favorite by far is the annual Veterans Day Luncheon. At this year’s luncheon I was honored to present my donation in front of so many local veterans who have made many sacrifices for the USA. To be surrounded by so many great people who have done so much for our country is a great honor, and I enjoyed spending time talking with them and personally thanking them for their service. I know I will never be able to fully pay back or completely express my gratitude towards those who serve, but I’m happy to make a difference where I can.
Thank you American Legion!
