Giving Back To Local Food Banks
April 08, 2020
Local food banks are beginning to receive the weekly funds allocated for our warm chocolate chip cookies that are normally baked each day at all locations. While the cookie production has paused, our servant hearts remain strong. We are committed to each week selecting a local non-profit to receive $750 to purchase the needed items for their food bank. As a locally-owned, community bank, it’s not only how we can help our friends and neighbors financially, but lending a hand to those needing the essentials. Together, we will get through this and become stronger as a community.
Week 1: Bridge of Faith Community Church, based in Rockaway Beach, received our weekly funds normally allocated for our warm chocolate chip cookies. We are thankful for Pastor Jonathan McGuire's leadership and team. To learn more about Bridge of Faith Community Church go to: https://www.bridgeoffaithcc.com/
Week 2: Our Lending Center in Branson West gave $750 to Ozarks Area Community Action Corporation (OACAC) as part of supporting local food banks. OACAC is part of a network of private, non-profit organizations that were created by the federal government in 1964 to combat poverty.
