DURANT, OK -- Dozens of Bryan County bank employees spent a rainy morning outside

First United Bank held a community clean-up day, visiting four parks where they spread new piles of woodchips into the playgrounds.

We caught up with them at Rocket Park on North Tenth Avenue. Durant branch president Bert Davison says they decided this form of service was a way to reach lots of people.

"We got 80 people out here trying to accomplish this. There's a lot of manpower, so we're providing a good benefit for the city and kind of helping them out, but primarily the community," says Davison. "We're kind of getting close to spring break and we wanted to make sure the parks were in shape for all the children."

Davison says 25 employees also showed up to paint the new Boys and Girls Club, and that they plan to do more projects like this in the future.
