Community Involvement

Beyond Banking
Our employees make a difference in the community

Volunteer Spotlight

Celebrating Employee Impact

We’re proud of the difference our employees have made to our community. We encourage and support their volunteer efforts, and recognize their contributions.

Jim Carriere has been in banking since 1985, joined First Federal in 2002, and is Senior Vice President of First Federal. Volunteering for an international disaster relief charity, ShelterBox USA, he recently exceeded $700,000 in funds raised, earning him recognition as the organization’s top all-time fundraiser. ShelterBox delivers emergency shelter and life-saving supplies to people affected by natural disasters or conflicts around the world.

A member of the Rotary Club of Novato, he first learned of the organization through its connection to Rotary. ShelterBox is the official Project Partner of Rotary International in disaster relief. Rotarians are often the first point of contact for the ShelterBox Response Team when they arrive in a country that has been devastated by a disaster. Others, like Carriere, help in fundraising and volunteer projects.

Carriere served on ShelterBox USA’s Board from 2010-2018, including his service as a Board Chairman in 2017 and 2018. Carriere has hosted a successful fundraising event for ShelterBox called Jimbalaya, in which he treats guests to cuisine from his hometown of New Orleans. In total, the event has raised more than $100,000.

We collaborate with other institutions to promote financial literacy

Financial Literacy

First Federal has collaborated with Operation Hope’s Banking on Our Future Program. Banking on Our Future focuses on keeping at-risk youth from repeating the cycles of poverty and despair that have trapped so many in their families and communities by teaching them basic financial literacy. Banking on Our Future elevates the dignity, hope, and economic self-sufficiency of people in low-wealth and underserved communities through financial literacy. Banking on Our Future students are given the tools they need to take control of their financial futures by learning about empowerment, responsibility, and hope. Banking on Our Future is the recipient of the U.S. Treasury Department’s John Sherman Award for Financial Literacy Excellence and Oprah’s Angel Network’s Use Your Life Award.
