During a ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate First South Bank’s new full-service banking office in Kill Devil Hills on September 24, 2014, Senior Vice President Skipper Hines presented a $2,500 donation to support the Outer Banks Community Foundation.
The donation will benefit the Flat Top Preservation Fund, an endowed fund that maintains, protects, and preserves the 1953 Frank Stick Flat Top cottage located at 13 Skyline Road in Southern Shores that houses the Community Foundation office.
“We are so grateful to First South Bank for their leadership, vision, and generous support,” said Lorelei Costa, Executive Director of the Community Foundation. “This donation will enable us to grow the Flat Top Endowment, maintain our home office, and preserve the architectural legacy of artist, architect, and visionary leader Frank Stick.”
“First South Bank is honored to be a member and supporter of the Outer Banks Community Foundation and contribute in a way that exemplifies one of the bank’s four guiding principles – ‘to be vested in the communities we serve’,” said Skipper Hines, Senior Vice President of First South Bank. “Thanks to the vision and mission of the foundation, this donation allows us to have a positive impact on the entire nonprofit community. In recognizing that growing this endowment fund provides the foundation with increased resources to re-invest in our community, we would like to invite other businesses to join us in giving to this fund.”
