Amarillo, TX – FirstBank Southwest (FBSW ) is proud to partner with the Amarillo Area Foundation #ThePanhandleGives event as a monetary drop off location. The campaign begins on Monday, November 23 through December 1, which is known nationally as #GivingTuesday.
#ThePanhandleGives is a Panhandle wide effort to raise the awareness of the nonprofit needs for communities across the 26-county region of the Texas Panhandle, as well as the monetary needs nonprofit organizations have during this critical time of year.
Donors who wish to give offline can make donations at any FirstBank Southwest location throughout the Panhandle. FBSW has locations in Amarillo, Hereford, Perryton, Booker, and Pampa. There, donors can designate their donation to a charity in the memo line or make an undesignated donation to the Amplification Fund at the Amarillo Area Foundation. All donations to the fund will be distributed amongst the participating nonprofit organizations.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, there will be a virtual “kick-off” through Facebook Live Monday, November 23, at 9:00 am, as well as area news station’s Facebook pages and websites. This year, Asha Curran, Co-Founder and CEO of Giving Tuesday, will share about the global perspective and kick off #ThePanhandleGives campaign.
