City Bank to award $50,000 to 10 local nonprofits

From City Bank Texas:

For the fifth consecutive year, Lubbock and South Plains residents can help their favorite charity secure up to $10,000 by participating in the Community Rewards program sponsored by City Bank.

City Bank will award a total of $50,000 to 10 local nonprofits to assist them in carrying out their missions of hope and service to people in need throughout our city and surrounding area. Any qualifying nonprofit organization is eligible to register and participate.

Lubbock and area residents will determine the gift recipients – one $10,000, five $5,000 and four $3,000 -- by voting for their favorite charity online at www.citybankonline.com. Six $500 "early rewards" will be presented as well at the Oct. 25 luncheon. Persons can vote once per day between Sunday, Nov. 4, and Friday, Dec.14.  Votes will be calculated during that period and the 10 winning charities, determined by vote totals, will be announced during the week before Christmas.

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 gift. During the past four years, City Bank has awarded $210,000 in Community Rewards to 35 nonprofit entities.  

"Community Rewards is a way for us to give back and help many of our neighbors through the caring and dedicated work of our nonprofit agencies," said Cory T. Newsom, City Bank President and CEO. "We also like that it builds awareness for a multitude of nonprofits and highlights their services and needs during the holiday season. We are blessed to live in a community with so many outstanding and caring agencies, and we are extremely pleased to be able to lend a hand in helping improve the quality of life in Lubbock and the area."

Registration deadline is Wednesday, Oct. 31. Questions can be directed to Norval Pollard at npollard@citybanktexas.com or 792-7101, ext. 4059.
