One of Seacoast Bank's Four Promises is to "Invest in you and your community", and we hold that promise in high regard. We asked our readers to tell us how they felt about the importance of community and its impact on all our lives.

"In unity there is always a strong sense of belonging... So being part of the community is important!"
"I think it’s very important in our unity that there is always a strong sense of belonging for everyone!! and it’s important to bring a part to the community so let’s do it."
"Caring for the good of our community is always important!"
"It is important because unity, cooperation & compassion is a terrific way to live in strength & love. More is accomplished & protected."
"To have a safe community, understanding community, feeling you belong there, that’s amazing! [It's up to us to] bring back the community for people to care for one another. It’s amazing when you feel a part in the community."
"You never know if you will be in a position where you need help. So please donate time."
