BRINGING JOY TO THE HOLIDAYS!
The Bank of Mead and Mead Public Schools are working together to offer gift assistance to local families in need this holiday season. If you need assistance with providing your family with gifts, contact Dawn Moser at Mead Public Schools at 402-624-3435 or email her at email@example.com. Your family’s request will be kept confidential; however, you will need to provide individuals’ ages, genders, and sizes, as well as any special requests. The Bank of Mead will have a Christmas tree in their lobby with tags containing family’s wish items that can be adopted by patrons. If you would like your family to be “adopted”, please contact Dawn Moser before November 22 with your family’s information
Individuals who wish to “adopt” a family member — please stop by the bank and grab a tag from the tree after November 29. You will need to have your purchased item(s) returned to the Bank of Mead by December 14 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 that in to the Bank of Mead by December 6 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
