PlainsCapital Bank Donates to Families of Fallen Dallas Police Officers
DALLAS, TX (July 11, 2016) — In the wake of the horrific and devastating shooting in downtown Dallas on July 7, 2016, the Hilltop Holdings family of companies – PlainsCapital Bank, PrimeLending, HilltopSecurities and National Lloyds – reached out to the Dallas Police Department and has made a $25,000 donation to the Assist the Officer Foundation operated by the Dallas Police Association. The organization provides immediate assistance to an officer’s family in the event of death or injury.
“Our great city is hurting,” said Alan. B. White, chairman of PlainsCapital Bank. “But in the wake of this tragedy, I believe the country and world will witness the strength, resilience and human compassion that makes me so proud to call Dallas home. We must all stand united against acts of hate and not let them define us.”
According to the Texas Bankers Association, banks and their employees throughout Texas have expressed concerned and inquired about ways to help.
“The morning after the tragedy, we began getting phone calls from member bankers asking if there was a coordinated effort on behalf of the industry to help the victims,” said TBA President and CEO Eric Sandberg. “We did our due diligence and selected Assist the Officer Foundation because 100% of the proceeds go to the families in need.”
