LUBBOCK, Texas – In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, First United Bank is launching the “Make Change” program in each of its 15 Banking Centers. The “Make Change” program encourages Bank customers, employees or anyone in the community to donate loose change from a cashed check or from the bottom of a pocket or purse towards hurricane relief. Change collection containers will be available in the lobby of each First United Banking Center, and all of the funds collected through this program will be donated to the American Red Cross.
This storm caused a tremendous amount of damage and the people affected will continue to need assistance for some time. The “Make Change” program was created as a way for people in the 11 communities that the Bank serves to continue to give back to their south Texas neighbors.
“Our hearts truly go out to those working to rebuild after such devastating loss,” said First United Bank CEO, Mark Bain. “This program is a way for us to help our neighbors in need and to practice our Founding Principles of Generosity, Loyalty, Integrity and Community. Everyone’s spare change can really add up to make an impact.”
Beginning the last week of September, stop by any First United Banking Center to donate. For more information please contact Lara Farren at LFarren@firstunited.net or connect with First United Bank on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
