Each week of October, donations were collected from bank employees participating in what is referred to internally as “Go Pink Fridays”. Employees were given the option to donate $5.00 each week to wear jeans and a pink shirt on that corresponding Friday. In addition to this internal fundraiser, each branch lobby had a Breast Cancer Awareness display encouraging customers to participate in a fun game of Plinko by donating $1. All proceeds were collected and match by the bank.

Reducing Spam

Spam is the electronic version of "junk mail". The term spam refers to unsolicited, often unwanted, email messages. Spam does not necessarily contain viruses-valid messages from legitimate sources could fall into this category.

How can you reduce the amount of spam?

  • Be careful about releasing your email address - Think twice before you respond to any requests for your email address, on the web, verbally, or on paper. Spammers can harvest any email address posted on a website.
  • Check privacy policies - Before submitting your email address online, look for a privacy policy. Most reputable sites will have a link to their privacy policy from any form where you're asked to submit personal data.
  • Be aware of options selected by default - when you sign up for some online accounts or services, there may be a section that provides you with the option to receive email about other products and services. Sometimes there are options selected by default, so if you do not deselect them, you could begin to receive email from those lists as well.
  • Using Filters or Spam Tagging - Many email programs offer filtering capabilities that allow you to block certain addresses or to allow only email from addresses on your contact list. Many ISPs also offer spam tagging services that allow the user the option to review suspected spam messages before they are deleted.
  • Report messages as spam - Most email clients offer an option to report a message as spam or junk. If your client has that option, take advantage of it.
  • Don't follow links in spam messages - Unwanted messages that offer an "unsubscribe" option are particularly tempting, but this is often just a method for collecting valid addresses that are then targeted for other spam.
  • Disable the automatic downloading of graphics in HTML mail - Many spammers send HRMP mail with a linked graphic file that is then used to track who opens the mail message. Disabling HTML mail entirely and viewing messages in plain text also prevents this problem.
  • Consider opening an additional email account - Many domains offer free email accounts. If you frequently submit your email address, you may want to have a secondary email account to protect your primary email account from any spam that could be generated.
  • Use privacy settings on social networking sites - Social networking sites typically allow you to choose who has access to see your email address. Consider hiding your email account or changing the settings so that only a small group of people that you trust are able to see your address.
  • Don't spam other people - Be a responsible and considerate user. Some people consider email forwards a type of spam, so be selective with the messages your redistribute.
