First National Bank and its employees presented $13,175.83 to Mid-Plains United Way last week.
Donations from First National Bank are not only supported by the business, but also largely by employees through payroll deductions. Their contributions bring Mid-Plains United Way’s fundraising thermometer up to 30% with $69,182.38 raised to go toward a goal of $232,000.
First National Bank kicked off Mid-Plains United Way’s “With a helping hand, we’re UNSTOPPABLE” campaign for the 25th year in a row with the traditional chili cook-off. This is just one more way that this bank provides support.
Mid-Plains United Way is 100% locally funded.
Less than 1% of funds raised go toward its United Way Worldwide membership, which provides resources, support, FamilyWize prescription discount cards and the 2-1-1 24/7 hotline. This means that more than 99% of all donations are invested locally.
To help Mid-Plains United Way’s efforts to improve education, health and financial stability in our communities, please send donations by mail to P.O. Box 172, North Platte, NE 69103 or online at www.midplainsunitedway.com.
