Wood & Huston Bank is committed to our community and the service men and women of our Nation.  On Friday, November 6, Wood & Huston held a taco salad fund raiser for Segs4Vets raising over $4,700.  Cargill, Walmart and Frito-Lay provided donations of their products in support of the event.  Wood & Huston employees also donated on select Fridays as a fun way to dress down to business casual.  In 2015, Wood & Huston will be donating $7,000 to Segs4Vets from its fundraising efforts.

Segs4Vets is an organization that believes that when those serving our Nation are sent into harm’s way and suffer serious injury and/or permanent disability that they must have every resource and tool at their disposal to allow service men and women to continue to live the highest quality of life possible. Segway mobile transporters are one of the major tools provided to help severely injured military men and women regain their everyday mobility.

"We couldn’t be more pleased with the Seg4Vets lunch results," commented Barry Randolph, President, Wood & Huston Bank. "We’re grateful to our corporate contributors and community members, many of whom donated much more than the suggested lunch price to support this worthy cause.  Since 2009, Wood & Huston Bank has raised and donated over $50,000 to Segs4Vets and other veteran’s organizations. Wood & Huston Bank is proud to continue its support of our community and the service men and women that have proudly served our Nation.”
