Celebrating Corporate Social Responsibility in San Antonio

12/07/2011 Community Options, a national nonprofit organization with the mission to develop homes and employment for people with disabilities is preparing to host for its fourth year in a row, the Cupid’s Chase 5K Run.

To celebrate and kick off the 2012 Cupid’s Chase 5K Run™ in Texas where First Lady Anita Perry is the Honorary Chair, corporations will be coming together on Tuesday, December 13, 2011 from 11am-1pm at Hotel Contessa in San Antonio to celebrate corporate social responsibility. One of the major corporate sponsors of the San Antonio Cupid’s Chase 5K Run is Prosperity Bank®.

Operating under a community banking philosophy, Prosperity seeks to develop broad customer relationships based on service and convenience. Prosperity offers a variety of traditional loan and deposit products to its customers, which consist primarily of consumers and small and medium sized businesses. Building community partnerships and being a good corporate citizen is highly important to Prosperity Bank.

“Like Community Options, Prosperity Bank wants to let the local and national areas know who we are and what we are all about, but most importantly, the organizations we support. Community Options touches so many lives in a positive way, and we are proud to be a part of its efforts. Cupid’s Chase not only gives great exposure for Community Options but also the organizations that are involved in supporting it,” says, Tiffany Webb Nelson, Vice President of Prosperity Bank®.

The Cupid’s Chase 5K Run is the largest, national, simultaneous 5K Run in the country held by any nonprofit organization. With 5K’s held in 25 cities across 10 states on the same day and same time, the Cupid’s Chase offers participants great prizes and giveaways, certified USATF courses and even the opportunity to make a love connection by choosing an “Available” or “Unavailable” shirt to wear. And yes, there have been love connections made as a result of this event over the years.

On many levels, Prosperity Bank® feels it is contributing to the nonprofit sector, not only monetarily but in volunteer time as well. “Through a variety of Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) initiatives, which include investments, loans, and community involvement by our associates, Prosperity Bank® provides money and time to low and moderate income level people. In addition to our CRA activities, our associates volunteer many hours to a wide variety of charitable organizations that provide support and help to people in need regardless of their socio-economic standing. Prosperity Bank® and our associates are always ready with a helping hand when the need arises, both corporately and personally,” added Nelson.

“We are so grateful for the support of the Prosperity Bank as well as our other corporate partners,” says Robert Stack, President and CEO of Community Options. “It is because of support like this that we are able to continue to develop and provide the innovative programming that we do on a daily basis for people with disabilities,” Stack added.
