First Interstate Bank, in partnership with the First Interstate BancSystem Foundation, has kicked off its inaugural Believe in Local grant campaign to celebrate the bank’s longstanding commitment to the communities it serves, including a $25,000 grant to Call to Freedom in Sioux Falls. The organization provides supportive services for victims of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. In total, 40 nonprofit organizations across First Interstate’s 14-state footprint will each receive a $25,000 gift, with new recipients being announced each week until Sept. 14 when First Interstate Bank marks its fifth annual Volunteer Day, closing all branches at noon to offer employees paid time to volunteer in their communities.
