First National Bank employees Cyndi Richards and Linda Crawford with the fully loaded back packs purchased by FNBT employees.
34 students in need in the Taylorville School District received a backpack and their necessary school supplies for the year thanks to First National Bank in Taylorville. The students ranged from Kindergarten students through the 8th grade.
Cyndi Richards is the Operations Officer at First National Bank in Taylorville. She says the employees of the bank raised $624 for the students, and the bank matched that donation. She says the bank and its employees want to keep its charitable money in the local community.
Richards says the donations came in so employees could wear denim on Friday’s.
Richards says the school district provided the supply lists for each grade level, allowing the bank to purchase all of the supplies needed for each student.
