SouthState Donates $1 million to Non-Profit Family First to Strengthen Families
“One of SouthState’s core values is enabling our team members to pursue their greater purpose – including their faith, family and service to community,” said LeDon Jones, director of Corporate Stewardship. “We believe making families strong makes communities prosper, and at SouthState we are committed to helping our communities thrive, which is why we’ve chosen to invest $1 million in the mission and programs of Family First.”
For 31 years, Tampa-based Family First has been impacting the lives of millions online and on the ground through its primary programs, iMOM and All Pro Dad. All Pro Dad was founded by Mark Merrill and former Super Bowl-winning Head Coach and Pro Football Hall of Famer, Tony Dungy. All Pro Dad provides resources, training and events to help fathers as they raise their children for a healthy and hopeful future. All Pro Dad Chapters bring fathers, father figures and children together each month in more than 1,300 schools in 44 states for meaningful conversations and continued connection.
“Our deepest gratitude is extended to SouthState for their generous donation and support of the Family First mission and its programs. This donation will allow the organization to make an even greater impact in changing the lives of families for generations to come," said Dungy.
