Freedom First is Giving Back

Two Freedom First employees posing in front of the new Scoop ice cream truck.
With Scoop the ice cream truck, Freedom First is able to give back to the community. We are growing our footprint by sponsoring and attending events, festivals and by visiting non-profits, schools, firehouses and local businesses.

Most banks evaluate their worth by how much they keep. At Freedom First, we measure our value by how much we give back.
