A few members of business banking and second floor were thinking about how we could pool all our money together to see how we could make an impact within our community.  We thought about the warming center downtown (Catholic Charities). Megan, Jake M, Nick, Jake S, Andy, Jared, Chad, Mariah, Heather, Amy S, Jesse, and Jeannette all chipped in our money and bought a ton of granola bars and paper towels.

A few of us delivered all the granola bars and paper towels to the warming center downtown and the director was very appreciative. She gave us a little tour that helped show exactly what homeless people do when they come into their warming center. It was very heartwarming to hear the story and how much impact local volunteers have on our community.

They were very grateful for our donation and couldn't thank us enough!
