Celebrating “Coats and Shoes for Kids” 20TH Anniversary
Amarillo, TX – FirstBank Southwest (FBSW) is kicking off its 30th year of sponsoring a community project geared toward children during the Christmas holidays. This year, the bank will again sponsor its “Coats and Shoes for Kids” drive in November and early December. Coats and Shoes for Kids began in the fall of 2001, which means this is our 20th year to help keep our kids warm!
The project provides basic warm coats and shoes for children in need, in the Perryton elementary and middle schools. Coats are purchased by bank employees, and shoes are purchased by school staff, who have identified children without proper outerwear or safe shoes. They will be delivered to the schools before Thanksgiving. Last year, private donations to the project provided around 109 coats and 65 pairs of shoes for the children. Nurses report there is always a need for shoes.
Anyone who would like to support the Coats & Shoes for Kids can make a donation, in any amount, at FirstBank Perryton Branch, located at 201 S. Main St. No school money or taxpayer funds are used in this project.
Donations are being accepted now through Friday, December 18th.
