PACIFIC FIRST BANK ASSISTS NEEDY IN THREE STATES

 PACIFIC FIRST BANK ASSISTS NEEDY IN THREE STATES
 SEATTLE, Dec. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 60 organizations aimed at helping homeless and needy individuals and families in Washington, Oregon and California are being assisted by Pacific First Bank, a Federal Savings Bank, "HOME for the Holidays" program. The bank, its employees, and many customers are partners in supporting community efforts through the holiday season by providing monetary contributions, food, clothing and gifts to a variety of community programs.
 The Pacific First Bank "HOME for the Holidays" program is an offshoot of its HOME (Housing Opportunities Made Easy) program which was designed to create affordable housing solutions and to develop greater participation in existing housing programs for low-to-moderate income groups and the homeless.
 Through the third quarter of 1991, Pacific First Bank made $35.5 million available for low-to-moderate income housing financing. HOME is also the primary focus for Pacific First Bank's corporate contributions program, and Pacific First Bank employees are actively involved in HOME projects. HOME has been endorsed by major community groups as well as the Federal Home Loan Bank of Seattle, and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
 Validation of Pacific First Bank's community reinvestment efforts, was the "Outstanding" rating the bank received from the Office of Thrift Supervision this year. It is the highest rating possible.
