Comerica Bank held its 7th annual National Days of Service in September. It was a multi-week effort culminating in a series of volunteer events on September 27. The multi-week community service focus on Comerica’s markets in Texas, Arizona, California, Florida and Michigan helped shine a spotlight on the importance of employee volunteerism.

“One of the best ways to make a positive difference in the communities where we live and work is to give back,” said Patricia McCann, vice president and civic affairs manager for Comerica, who coordinates the bank’s volunteer program. “By devoting their personal time and talents to worthwhile community activities, our colleagues are raising the expectations of what a bank can be. That is, we do more than make loans and take deposits. We are trusted advisors, and have an unwavering commitment to the communities we serve.”

Over 54 separate days of service projects were held over several weeks.
