Rebuilding with community

What started like any other day for the Bensink family quickly became a pivotal moment in their lives. After getting the kids ready for school and heading off to work, Travis and Tawn Bensink got a call that their home was on fire. Their lives were upended in a matter of minutes, but the community rallied in support, including Carl Swan, senior district manager at Community Bank.

Having worked with the Bensinks on their initial mortgage, Carl knew the family well and went above and beyond to help. From organizing their finances to getting them ready to rebuild their home, even going as far as coordinating with the insurance company to ensure a smooth experience, Carl proved to be indispensable in getting the family back on their feet. With their new home under construction, the family has a vision of their future—a vision made clearer thanks to Community Bank.
