Community Giving

Over a Century of Helping Others

Timberland Bank is proud to invest in our local communities through generous charitable giving. We appreciate the opportunity to support organizations, programs and events that strengthen the communities we care about and call home.

Giving back to the communities we serve is a natural extension of our business. Timberland staff members contribute their time, talent and treasures to serve as leaders, board members and volunteers in organizations throughout our community. In giving back to local causes we enrich not only our communities, but also our company and ourselves.

Wall of Hope

Pierce County Habitat for Humanity calls the first wall raised in every building the 'Wall of Hope.'  The Wall of Hope is long-standing tradition that involves sponsors writing well wishes and messages of hope on the 2×6 studs that frame a home. Timberland's Pierce County employees enjoyed participating in the tradition and are pictured here with our contribution to the Wall of Hope.
