Celebrating “Coats and Shoes for Kids” 22ND Anniversary
Amarillo, TX – FirstBank Southwest (FBSW) is celebrating its 22nd 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.
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. This year 66 coats and 52 pairs of shoes were provided. The last 22 years, private donations to the project provided 3,323 coats and 1,893 pairs of shoes for the children. Nurses report there is always a need for coats and shoes.
Anyone who would like to support the Coats & Shoes for Kids can donate, in any amount, at FirstBank Perryton Branch, located at 201 S. Main St. No school money or taxpayer funds are used in this project.
