Just under 290 local families received a Thanksgiving surprise this year when 202 gift certificates ranging from $50 to $100, 15 Thanksgiving meals, and 67 turkeys were delivered to families within the community. “Tears of joy and appreciation were flowing when we distributed these Thanksgiving gifts,” says First National Bank in Trinidad Sr. Vice President, Mrs. Roberta Noel. Mrs. Noel organized the food drive for the bank, where within 20 days, $8,195 in cash donations were collected for area families in need.
Two local communities will benefit from Gift Tree programs sponsored by The First National Bank in Trinidad and the Huerfano County Branch in Walsenburg. Each location has its own gift program with matching deadlines. Here are the details on each.
During this time of year, you can be certain that temperatures drop, leaves fall, days get shorter, and The First National Bank in Trinidad is busy making final preparations for its 37th annual open house and calendar distribution. The 2023 calendar will be available on a first come, first served basis at the open house set for Friday, December 2nd from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the main bank in Trinidad and at the Loan Production Office in Raton.
This year will be the 19th year that The First National Bank in Trinidad has sponsored an annual Thanksgiving Food Drive in Trinidad.
