Hancock Whitney recently donated $15,000 through a generous COVID-19 Relief Grant! Covenant House Texas is so grateful for the benevolence of Hancock Whitney, particularly during this time. Thank you for your partnership in providing safety, guidance and support to youth experiencing homelessness in Houston.
Hancock Whitney—one of America’s strongest, safest banks—has committed $2.5 million for investments in communities to help people in some of the Gulf South’s most vulnerable neighborhoods during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hancock Whitney leaders said the bank’s $2.5 million investment in communities and other relief efforts come at a critical time as the novel coronavirus continues to impact lives and livelihoods across the cities and towns the bank serves as well as the global community.
“We are, all of us, in this fight together to protect our loved ones, clients, colleagues, and communities from this virus,” said Hancock Whitney President and CEO John M. Hairston. “This pandemic is creating real, significant challenges for so many people in terms of adequate food, income, basic safeguards against the virus, and housing to shelter in place. Hancock Whitney has very deep roots in the communities we serve. It’s simply the right thing to do what we can so that together we help keep people safe and our communities strong.”
