City Bank offers $50,000 to Lubbock nonprofits

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Provided by City Bank

Lubbock and South Plains residents again can help secure up to $5,000 for the nonprofit organization of their choice this fall by participating in the Community Rewards program sponsored by City Bank. Media members can learn more about the Community Rewards program at a kickoff luncheon at 11:30 a.m., Thursday, Oct. 13, at City Bankʼs Griffith Center, located on the lower floor at 5219 City Bank Parkway.

City Bank will make available a total of $50,000 to be awarded to local charities to assist them in carrying out their missions of hope and service to people in need in our city and area. Any qualifying nonprofit organization is eligible to register and be included.

Nonprofit agency directors, board members and related personnel will be encouraged to rally their friends and donors to vote to maximize their chance of finishing in the top 10 and receiving a $5,000 gift.

"We believe in giving back to our community," said Cory Newsom, City Bank President and CEO.

"Community Rewards has proven to be a way for large and small charities alike to benefit. The program also builds awareness of dozens of nonprofits and their services and needs during the holiday season. In this way the smaller and lesser publicized nonprofits have a chance to benefit equally with the well known and more established nonprofits."

Nonprofits can receive a registration form by emailing Norval Pollard at npollard@citybanktexas.com or calling him at 792-7101, ext. 4059.
