Step Forward Campaign

Step Forward sponsored by Mars Bank

Mars Bank is honoring first responders and military personnel who stepped forward when others needed help.

Do you know a first responder, active military or veteran who deserves a shout out? Between September 11, the day we will never forget, and November 11, Veterans Day, Mars Bank is posting to social media stories describing service, bravery or heroics. Post a “thank you” or a tribute to an individual or unit. Our police, fire, emergency personnel and military ‘Step Forward’ when others are backing away or turning to run. We want to honor their bravery and share their stories with our community. 

Visit us on Facebook, post a comment and include the hashtag #StepForward
