Community Involvement

We are your bank

We are the hometown bank for Henderson County in East Texas. Our history is here, our work is here and our families and friends are here.  That's why we're so involved in the communities where we live and work.  

Our community pride shows in everything we do: from the way we greet our customers in the bank and on the street, to the professionalism with which our employees provide service to non-profit organizations and charities throughout East Texas.  

We think the communities where we have branch locations are pretty special.  That's why we work so hard to provide the kind of products and services that our residents and businesses need.

When it comes to community involvement, no one is more invested than First State Bank. Just look at a few of the activities and events that we get involved in.
