Bank gives 900 bags of food to elementary students
Every student at West Side Elementary and Cloud Springs Elementary schools went home on winter break with a big bag of food and goodies thanks to Community National Bank.
Last year, CNB filled 190 bags with food items to send home with children over Christmas break to help make sure they’d have a little extra during the holiday season. This year, they filled 900 bags. They also delivered stockings with special treats to preschoolers at West Side (Cloud Springs does not have pre-k classes).
“This is one way we enjoy helping our community,” says CNB Senior Vice President Natalie Hunt. “We knew last year when we started this project that we wanted to expand it. We were thrilled to be able to do 900 bags this year.”
Hunt and a host of volunteers gathered at CNB on Battlefield Parkway in Ringgold the day before delivery and spent hours filling bags.
