disabilities. In Indiana, the program will fight malnourishment by
discreetly placing food in the backpacks of children in need. In
Tennessee, the program will support at-risk students and the educators
who provide them a high-quality education.

The program is called Share the Good.

The program is powered by associates from Regions Bank.

The program will reach countless people spread across the Southeast,
Midwest and Texas, throughout the month of September.

Now in its ninth year, Share the GoodSM connects Regions
associates with nonprofits to address a variety of pressing needs. This
year, there are dozens of localized community engagement initiatives
taking place as part of Share the Good.

Among examples:

  • In Huntsville, Ala., Regions associates will support a program raising
    awareness and funds to help connect foster children with healthy,
    stable home environments.
  • In Nashville, Tenn., Regions associates will donate essential supplies
    for women and children who have survived domestic violence and are
    beginning a new chapter.
  • In St. Louis, Mo., Regions associates will roll up their sleeves and
    build wheelchair ramps in conjunction with Paraquad, a nonprofit that
    serves people living with disabilities.
  • In Baton Rouge, La., financial professionals from Regions will spend
    time training eighth-grade students how to manage money, spend wisely
    and avoid common financial mistakes.
  • In Knoxville, Tenn., Regions will provide financial support to the
    Knoxville Museum of Art's Community School program, which provides
    at-risk students with access to art education, abstract thinking and
    problem-solving lessons designed to help young people tap into their
    potential to excel.
  • In Birmingham, Ala., Regions associates across all Regions
    headquarters facilities will collect food to be distributed through
    local food banks to families in need.
  • In Mobile, Ala., and Pensacola, Fla., Regions associates will
    volunteer with the Feeding the Gulf Coast food bank to connect people
    with vital nutrition.
  • Regions associates in Indianapolis will do the same; however, there,
    they will place the food in the backpacks of children who need a
    source of nutrition during nights and weekends when they're away from
    school.

The examples continue. Dozens of initiatives are about to begin. For
each, the goal is the same: to encourage Regions associates to use their
time and talents, as well as the resources the bank devotes to the
program, to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others.

"Share the Good is a program that empowers our teams at Regions to serve
communities in creative ways that people may never have expected from a
bank," said Leroy Abrahams, head of Community Affairs for Regions. "Some
of the most powerful ways we can make a difference include supporting
education, promoting financial wellness and staying constantly in touch
with local issues that we can help address. Our commitment to community
engagement is year-round; Share the Good gives our teams a special
opportunity to develop new and innovative ways to serve."

Community engagement is part of the culture at Regions and is fostered
through a variety of ongoing programs. For example, every year, Regions
offers each of its associates a paid day off to volunteer in his or her
community. Associates are also able to match their skills and interests
with nonprofit service opportunities across communities where they work.

Additional examples of Regions' commitment to social responsibility are
illustrated on regions.doingmoretoday.com
and are also detailed in the company's annual Social Responsibility
Report, which is available in the Community
Engagement Section
