As communities across the country battle to contain the spread of COVID-19, Hilltop Holdings’ family of companies is joining the fight by supporting organizations serving on the frontline. Together, Dallas-based Hilltop and its subsidiaries PlainsCapital Bank, PrimeLending, HilltopSecurities, and National Lloyds, have donated more than $500,000 to charities across the country.
On April 28 Hilltop made a $300,000 donation to Baylor Scott & White (BSW) Dallas Foundation’s “Employees 1st Emergency Assistance Fund” which assists BSW Health employees who are experiencing financial hardship due to the pandemic. Hilltop’s donation will aid approximately 28,000 BSW caregivers who are among the most profoundly impacted by the crisis, providing them with meals, hotel costs, and childcare. Baylor Scott and White is the largest non-profit healthcare system in Texas.
“Hilltop recognizes the sacrifices of our healthcare workers and the critical role they play in protecting our communities and stopping the spread of COVID-19,” said Hilltop Holdings President and CEO Jeremy Ford. “We are grateful for the selfless caregivers of Baylor Scott and White and we are proud to support them through this difficult time.”
Hilltop’s donation to BSW is only the most recent step the family of companies has taken to support communities in the fight against the pandemic. Some of its additional efforts include:
“It has never been more important to support our local communities and we are fortunate to have so many dedicated charities serving those in need during this crisis. We are proud to do what we can to help,” Ford said.
