Defiance, OH – As part of their grand opening celebration, First Federal Bank will award the Sylvania Community Arts Commission with a check for up to $5,000 to fund local art education programs.

“The Arts Commission mission compliments our better together philosophy of empowering others and building upon the success of the community,” said Joel Jerger, Market Area Executive for First Federal Bank. “We are passionate about serving our communities beyond just business.

To represent the partnership between First Federal Bank, the commission and the community, from now through March 9th, the bank is inviting all to join in creating a glass mosaic that will be permanently displayed in the office’s lobby.

“The glass mosaic provides us with the opportunity to connect with our neighbors and business partners in a casual and a more personal way,” said Tara Sibert, Financial Sales Manager for First Federal Bank. “Similar to each piece of glass mosaic; individually we are unique and when that uniqueness is appreciated we can create something incredible as a whole.”
