The professionals of First Tryon are passionate about giving back to the community and remembering the importance of always “adding to the community woodpile”. We strive to help improve lives and secure a better future in the communities we serve by harnessing the talent, energy and experience of our people to make a positive impact in communities where we work.

Recently, a team of First Tryon employees and their family members met early on a Saturday morning to deliver and serve breakfast to Charlotte residents who were waiting to meet with counselors at Crisis Assistance Ministry. Crisis Assistance Ministry is Mecklenburg County’s Lead Agency offering emergency assistance to impoverished families. Specifically, Crisis Assistance Ministry helps families facing financial crisis by providing for basic needs with rent and utility assistance, clothing, household goods, furniture, bedding and appliances; fostering financial stability through partnerships, counseling, and support to give families the tools they need to move toward stability; and educating the community about the realities of poverty in Mecklenburg County.
