Banks host Backpack Food Drive


TORRINGTON – Pinnacle Bank knows all about helping people with their money. The family owned bank has been around for four generations, but for Pinnacle Bank they are lending a hand in a vastly different way.
A child’s chance for a bright future starts with getting enough healthy food to eat. However, for many local children, school meals may be the only meals they eat. What happens when they go home over the weekend? The Goshen County Backpack Program helps fill this void, by providing bags of food on Fridays, with enough food to feed them and family members, through the weekend. And Pinnacle Bank wants to help stock their pantry in preparation for the upcoming school year.
Pinnacle Bank branches in Torrington and Mitchell, Neb., are hosting a food drive to benefit the Backpack Program through Aug. 18. A list of needed items may be found on Pinnacle Bank – Wyoming’s Facebook page or by contacting your local branch.
According to Doug Weedin, President and CEO of Pinnacle Bank – Wyoming, “We know education is the key to success and want all of our youth to have every opportunity to succeed. We encourage our community to join us in our efforts to help positively impact this extraordinary organization, which provides so many of our local children with a necessity and, in turn, greater opportunities for achievement.”
