Six nonprofits are feeling the spirit of the season, thanks to a local bank.
City Bank awarded the organizations $10,000 each as part of its Community Rewards Program. The Program launched Sunday, October 26th. The winners were determined through online voting. City Bank originally planned to give $50,000, but the votes were too close to narrow it to five. So, now $60,0 will be divided among 6 winners.
They are CASA of the South Plains, Early Learning Center, Lubbock MHMR, the South Plains Food Bank, Roosevelt PTA, and Kingdom Preparatory Academy.
"It is huge for us. As any nonprofit knows it's a real challenge and there is a lot of nonprofit out there vying for the dollars so it's a huge thing for us," says Administrator of the Kingdom Preparatory Academy Jared Squire.
There were 134 nonprofits on the ballot, and more than 240,000 votes were cast.
