First Federal wins marketing honors

Thursday, June 3, 2004

The Iowa Bankers Association honored First Midwest Financial, Inc., holding company for First Federal Savings Bank and Security State Bank on May 7 with a 'Best of Iowa' bank marketing award.

Banks from around the state participated in this competition, which included community development, multimedia, print, website, direct mail, radio, television, and miscellaneous categories.

First Midwest's first place community development entry titled 'Holiday Habitat for Humanity Project' was implemented to raise and donate funds to a well-known and respected charity, and to donate employee time and talents to work on current Habitat houses.

First Midwest raised over $5,000 for local Habitat chapters in the communities it serves, sponsored three Habitat families by providing holiday food baskets and gifts for all family members, and donated 175 hours of employee time.
