Old Glory Bank Announces Code of Vets as Charitable Round-Up Partner
Account reservations are now open
ELMORE CITY, Okla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Old Glory Bank is proud to announce that Code of Vets will be an official charity partner for Old Glory Bank’s Charitable Round-Up program. Code of Vets is a non-profit organization that helps veterans in distress.
Old Glory Bank is the first FDIC-insured, chartered bank to openly support America, its flag, freedom, patriotism, the military, and first responders. One of the bank’s many features will be its Charitable Round-Up program in which customers have the option to round-up to the nearest dollar and contribute each time they use their Old Glory Bank cards. Code of Vets will be one of the charities that customers can select.
Code of Vets, located in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization founded by United States Air Force veteran Gretchen Smith in honor of her father, U.S. Army Sgt. Danny E. Smiley, a Vietnam veteran who was exposed to Agent Orange and died of PTSD at the age of 57. Code of Vets gives immediate assistance to in-crisis, at-risk and in-need veterans who have fallen through the cracks. Ninety-eight cents of every dollar donated to Code of Vets goes directly to assistance.
“We are excited to partner with a bank that will protect our funds, freedom and veterans,” Gretchen Smith explains. “Old Glory Bank is going to provide secure banking for all Americans, and their focus on mobile banking, will allow us to bring veterans back into the banking system. We have a bright future ahead of us with Old Glory Bank leading the way.”
“Old Glory Bank is honored to work with Gretchen and all of the great volunteers at Code of Vets,” states Bennett Brown, Old Glory Bank’s senior regulatory officer. “In my five decades of banking, one of our industry’s biggest challenges is finding ways to ‘bank the un-banked.’ Working with Code of Vets, we are going to identify our great veterans that have fallen out of the banking system, and work hard to get them back.”
Headquartered in Elmore City, Oklahoma, Old Glory Bank will provide best-in-class mobile banking solutions across the United States and will begin offering mobile banking services in Q1 of 2023. Old Glory Bank is currently accepting account reservations at www.oldglorybank.com.
