CNB’s Successful Partnership with the United Way in Hattiesburg


CNB’s Hattiesburg team has been recognized for outstanding service to the United Way of Southeast Mississippi. The Bank was recognized as a Platinum Sponsor and a Pacesetter during the United Way’s annual meeting which was held on April 26. Lori Siccone, Bank Manager for CNB’s South Hattiesburg Banking Centre, was also recognized as the United Way of Southeast Mississippi’s Workplace Coordinator of the Year. For the second year in a row, CNB’s Hattiesburg team stepped up to participate in the United Way’s Pacesetter campaign, which consists of businesses who kick off their fundraising campaigns early and help the United Way to gain momentum in their overall campaign. The Platinum status is based on a point system and is awarded based on the percentage of the organization’s employee participation, the percentage of donors that give at the Grand Giver level of $1,000 or more, and the average donation amount per donor. This year, the Hattiesburg team increased their annual giving by 31%, and raised over $19,000. In addition, over 30% of their employees were also Grand Givers, pledging at least $1,000 each. The United Way also announced that Jaclyn Baylis, Vice President and Relationship Banker in Hattiesburg, has also been appointed to serve as Board Chair for the United Way of Southeast Mississippi for the 2023-2024 year. Having played an instrumental role in the United Way’s efforts over the past 17 years, Jaclyn most recently served as Resource Development Chair for the United Way. Through her leadership, the organization raised over $1 million to fund their various programs that support health, economic mobility, and education. “Our efforts would not be possible without local businesses allowing us to host workplace campaigns where employees can donate to our mission. These same businesses generously allow their employees time off to volunteer with United Way. I am so proud to lead this organization going forward because when we live united, hope happens,” she added.
