Local charities can cash in from your click

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - 'Tis the season for giving, and this morning you only have 18 days to help give to your favorite charity. We're talking about the City Bank Community Rewards Program.

It's the second year City Bank has set out to help local charities. They've set up an easy way to help charities earn $5,000, and it doesn't cost you anything. All you have to do is log on and vote.

Last year, around 400,000 people voted, and City Bank awarded six organizations. They were originally supposed to award five, but the votes were just too close. This year, they'll award ten charities.

"It's one way for us to give back to the community at really a critical time for a lot of non-profits, because their goods and services are so widely used at this time of year," Norval Pollard with City Bank said. 

Voting ends December 18th. New this year, folks can vote as often as they like instead of once a day. You can also check to see who's in the top ten whenever you like.
