The Branson office of the Salvation Army works year-round to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of area residents. Their most visible fund-raising effort involves their bell ringing with the ‘Red Kettles’ that are out during the holidays. The employees of Ozark Mountain Bank wanted to help them get an early jump on raising funds with a donation of more than $450.
Ozark Mountain Bank employees were given the opportunity to wear jeans and tennis shoes at work for a couple of different days in August in return for a donation. More than $450 was collected and given to the local Salvation Army office.
“The Salvation Army’s ministry of service to families in need is one that requires the support of the local community,” Salvation Army Corps Officer Lt. Shawn B. DeBaar stated. “We are thankful to have this support from our friends at Ozark Mountain Bank. Their donation will help The Salvation Army continue to serve the over 4,200 families that come to The Salvation Army each year for help.”
“We understand the vital role that the Salvation Army plays in our community,” Ozark Mountain Bank President and CEO Craig Richards said. “We appreciate their service and we know they will use this money to help meet the needs of our area.”
