In honor of ten years of service in the Wilson County community, First Freedom Bank is spotlighting ten worthy community service organizations, and donating in support of their efforts. In April, First Freedom recognized the Wilson County Civic League (WCCL). WCCL was established in 1984 for the purpose of improving social conditions in the community by promoting programs that enhance self-worth and dignity. Through recreation, education, seminars, workshops, and regular tutoring programs, the Civic League addresses problems such as drug abuse, teen pregnancy, violence, and AIDS. Their philosophy is that preventive measures exceed rehabilitative efforts.
