The staff of Community Bank of Pickens County, in an effort to show Hometown Commitment, have the option of wearing blue jeans on Fridays and when they do they donate an amount each time into a collected pool of donations that are then disbursed to local charities in need of support. The staff voted on which charities they would like the donations given to and for May 2013 donations were collected to support the local chapter of FERST Foundation Reading Program. Community Bank of Pickens County is a locally owned and operated, independent community bank that is committed to making a difference through Hometown Commitment. CBOPC was founded in October of 2000 and has two full service locations at 15 Sammy McGhee Blvd. and 65 Cove Rd. in Jasper, GA. www.cbopc. Member of FDIC.
