August 19, 2016 Dear Friends of Provident, All of us at Provident in Baton Rouge continued to be saddened and overwhelmed with heartbreak from the disastrous “Great Flood of 2016” which by many accounts is of biblical proportions, a 1000 year event. We get comfort and draw strength from the scenes of courage and determination from all in our community as we attempt to address the challenges that so many are confronted with. Many of you have reached out and asked how you can support the Provident Family at this time of crisis. A number of our employees in our corporate headquarters in Baton Rouge have “lost everything”, suffered severe damage to the homes and personal belongings. We are working to assess their needs so that Provident can respond with financial relief and other assistance. It is too soon to know how much relief is needed but preliminary reports are staggering. Our goal is to raise at least $ 75,000 to support our Provident Family who are suffering. We will be making cash donations to our affected employees as well as providing them with needed supplies and personal items for them and their children. We would greatly appreciate any donation you or your company could provide to assist with this effort. Any donation to Provident will be a tax-deductible charitable donation. All funds will be accounted for by our Accounting and Administration Group. Provident’s Senior Management and Board of Directors have initially funded our effort with personal donations totaling $25,000. Our affected employees and Provident have much work to be done to address this crisis. It will be long road to a recovery for many. Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated. Steve E. Hicks, Chairman & CEO Debra Lockwood, President & CFO Donovan Hicks, Exec. VP & Chief Legal Officer
