By From page A10 | April 07, 2014

DIXON — Dixon-based First Northern Bank during National Volunteer Week is recognizing community service by its employees.

The bank’s nearly 200 employees volunteered 7,689 hours throughout 2013. They helped 250 nonprofit organizations within the bank’s service area that includes Fairfield, Vacaville, Dixon, Davis, West Sacramento, Winters, Woodland, Roseville and Auburn, a press release said.

For example, Gwyn Runnels, senior vice president for sales and deposit manager, volunteers 200 to 300 hours each year. She’s on the NorthBay Healthcare board of directors, mentors young women and talks to children at The Leaven about the importance of saving money. The Leaven is a Fairfield-based afterschool tutoring program.

National Volunteer Week began Sunday and ends Saturday.
