(MENA) The Mena branch of Arvest Bank made a check presentation that will provide funds for the purchase of food for residents in the area.
Branch Assistant Manager Alyvia Self, along with other bank employees presented a check to Pam Harris of First Baptist Church in Mena, on behalf of Ninth Street Ministries.
Arvest Bank, with locations in Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma initiated a program in 2011 to raise funds to feed a million meals to individuals yearly.
Harris said that the ministry was very appreciative of the efforts of Arvest Bank here in the community. It was the first year for the local branch to conduct the campaign.
According to Self, the bank will consider and choose a different charity or organization that will provide the most good in providing meals to the area.
Self added that they want to spread the love around to different organizations in getting and giving the most impact.
