Citizens Bank Raises Funds for Back-to-School Supplies
Citizens Bank wanted to help the local Boys and Girls Clubs in Las Cruces and Truth or Consequences with providing school supplies to their kids. We had a unique way of raising funds - a coin drive! The bank was divided into several teams, and staff was asked to compete for most coins per team.
Just a few of the jars are shown below.
There was a "twist" near the end - pennies placed in other teams' jars would sabotage their points, and dimes placed in one's own team jar counted for double the points.
After all the sabotage was done, and all the coins were counted (easy to do at a bank), over $765 was raised! The winning team (one of the branches outdid themselves) had the opportunity to choose a pizza party or ice cream party.
Several dedicated employees went out in Las Cruces and in T or C and did LOTS of shopping the week of 8/3/15. Both the LC and T or C clubs were presented with plenty of supplies, and a check for $100 went to the LC club.
Below are kids at the LC Boys and Girls Club with some of the supplies.
Below, Kelsey Prather, CPO of Boys and Girls Club of Sierra County, shows off some of the 50 packs of paper donated, with help from two local youths.
Here's to a great school year for the kids!
