MLK Day: “A day on, not a day off.”

And a leg up for our community.

Although MLK Day is a federal holiday, BankCherokee staff reports to work anyway, to recap our previous year’s successes, and to discuss this year’s mission.    

But for us, there’s more to this holiday than a review of past performance and future goals. Why? MLK Day is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service—“a day on, not a day off.”  So, in the tradition of preceding years, we’re reserving the majority of our day to buoy our community.

This year, BankCherokee’s “day on” will benefit SimonSaysGive, a kid-founded and kid-operated non-profit that is developing the next generation of unstoppable leaders…and that is on track to impacting 2 million children by 2022. To learn more, visit

Through our staff, we hope that SimonSaysGive will benefit as richly as the other fantastic non-profits with whom we’ve joined forces over the years. Those organizations include: 

We are proud of BankCherokee’s civic commitment. To continue that tradition, there’s no better day to do that than on a day honoring one of the greatest civil rights leaders in history
