FFB Providing Help to Veterinary Hospitals Across the Country During COVID-19
As part of the CARES Act, the Paycheck Protection Program provides resources to businesses to keep employees at work during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To date, FFB has approved hundreds of PPP loans, resulting in millions in funding to business owners and thousands of employees nationally! Obviously no small task, the team at First Financial has literally worked around the clock to provide customers with help during these trying times.
"We were at a very vulnerable time when COVID-19 shut down our community and drastically decreased our business. FFB stepped up immediately after the PPP loan was announced and provided information and guidance on how to proceed with the loan. Because of this, we were able to submit our application on the 2nd business day after the program opened and received our acceptance on the 3rd business day. By the end of the week, the badly needed funds were in our account. This was in great contrast to most other small businesses we knew that struggled to even talk to a bank representative in the week following the program's opening. Because of FFB, we never cut a single hour of our employees' pay and were able to run our business with the confidence that we'd get through this crisis." -Julie, Parker Animal Hospital
