American Bank joined other firms in the community in showing support for Red River Industries, the local ARC. On Tuesday they presented a check for $500.
Red River Industries puts people to work who have disadvantaged. Red River Industries does ironing and they bake some of the best cakes and cookies in the area. They also do cleaning work for area residents and businesses. That function is on hold because they have had no transportation since the van broke down.
In recent weeks, Red River Industries have received several grants to their “new van” fund. At the presentation Tuesday Janelle Givens, Vice President of American Bank presented the check to Teal Loring, Executive Director and Board Member Tommy Glen Jones. Givens said, “We want to help them buy that new van. And we hope to spark other businesses in town to support the work of Red River Industries.”
