FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ICBA Members Rally Behind Habitat for Humanity

Washington, D.C. (Oct. 28, 2004) - Members of the Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) show their continued support of Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI) by reaching for their checkbooks as well as their hammers. ICBA members across the nation contributed to an ICBA sponsored fund, which will assist the international organization in making homeownership possible for many Americans.

Contributing banks include First National Bank, Midwest City, Okla.; Citizens State Bank of Waverly, Waverly, Minn.; Sussex Bank, Franklin, N.J.; The Farmers Bank, Greensboro, Ga.; CorTrust Bank, Sioux Falls, S.D.; and Concordia Bank & Trust Co., Vidalia, La.

In May 2004, ICBA established an alliance with Habitat for Humanity International to further develop working relationships between its thousands of members and the nearly 1,700 local Habitat for Humanity affiliates across the nation. ICBA and HFHI are already planning a National Build Day in June 2005, an effort that will encompass multiple locations and is expected to involve hundreds of community bank leaders and staff volunteers.

"Community banks help millions of Americans realize the dream of homeownership every day," said Camden R. Fine, president and CEO of ICBA. "Many of our members already work with Habitat for Humanity in their local communities. Now ICBA is helping community banks coordinate their efforts nationwide. Homeownership makes America's communities stronger and expanding homeownership opportunities is a common goal between ICBA and Habitat."

Each year, ICBA members volunteer their time at a local home building project with Habitat for Humanity affiliates in the city of its annual convention. Additionally, ICBA and Habitat for Humanity work throughout the year to organize other volunteer build days.
