BRINGING HOME THE HOLIDAYS
The Bank of Mead and Mead Public Schools are working together to offer gift assistance to families in need this holiday season. The Bank of Mead will have a Christmas tree in the lobby with tags containing families wish items that can be adopted by patrons.
If you wish to “adopt” a family member, stop by the bank and grab a tag from the tree. You will need to have your purchased item(s) returned to the Bank of Mead by December 16 so they can ensure everyone receives a wrapped gift and that it can be given back to the school for delivery. If you would prefer to make a monetary donation rather than shop, please turn in to the Bank of Mead by December 4 so we have time to purchase gifts with it.
“Giving pays the highest interest rate, and has the longest term, of any investment available.” Jeffrey K. Wilson
