• First Southern Bank announces ''Employees Caring for Our Community'' initiative

    First Southern Bank is proud to announce our annual “Employees Caring for Our Community” initiative.  Employees recently chose three local non-profit organizations.  Fundraising efforts took place throughout the year. Workplace payroll campaigns, as well as special event fundraisers, were all initiated and donated by proud First Southern Bank employees.
    GumDrop Kids, St. Francis Community Animal Rescue & Education, and The Austin Wade Foundation each received $7,500. All three of these organizations work hard to make Southern Illinois a wonderful place to live, work and play. For more information please visit
