Arvest Bank to Conduct Random Acts of Kindness

Category: Arvest Community News

Arvest Bank associates will be on a “giving mission” the week of Dec. 10, performing random acts of kindness throughout the community. These “Random Acts of Kindness” are part of an initiative that every Arvest branch in communities across North Central Arkansas are taking part in to share in the spirit of giving this holiday season.

Each branch will receive a designated amount of money to donate to the community in any manner they choose. Arvest’s respective “Kindness Krews” at the various bank locations will conduct their random acts of kindness on a particular day so there will be constant giving throughout that week.

“This is a new community project for us and our teams could not be more excited,” said Sally Gilbert, market president of Arvest Bank in Mountain Home, Arkansas. “Our associates take part in several initiatives that benefit our area throughout the year but the element of surprise, especially during the holiday season, adds even more enjoyment to giving back to our community. It’s our hope that the gesture of helping someone, in some way, during the holidays becomes contagious.”

The random acts of kindness may include charitable gestures such as paying for someone’s groceries or gas, paying a utility bill during the winter months, or a host of other creative ideas.

Focus on Greenwood Receives Arvest Foundation Grant

Thursday, November 15 at 11:00 AM
Category: Arvest Community News

Local children in the Greenwood area will benefit from a $2,000 donation from the Arvest Foundation.

The gift was announced today at the Focus on Greenwood facility in Greenwood. Jamie Skinner of Arvest Bank was on hand to present the check.

The funds will be used to purchase a prosthetic devise for a local student as well as eyeglasses for students that are recommended by the school nurse. 

“The funds will be used to go toward the cost of the prosthetic device and some of the continuing care which will be required for our amputee, Miss Jessica Wilson,” Said Dr. Evan Rowe, Focus on Greenwood member, “With the grant from Arvest Bank, it is much easier for our organization, Focus on Greenwood, to provide the prosthetic device. As you can imagine, a prosthetic is extremely expensive and fortunately we are getting an exceptional deal both from Össur and from Francois Van Der Watt, and thanks to the generous donation we are able to make this event possible. Without the funding there would have been very little money to go toward other community programs, as the majority of the proceeds would have all gone to the prosthetic.

“Any extra funding left over after the prosthetic costs have been settled will be placed in the general fund to be used by Focus on Greenwood for other community needs. This could include glasses for kids, shoes for kids, medical assistance to those in need, scholarships for local seniors or to go toward purchasing things needed for those kids in the Angel Tree Program.”

“We are pleased to present Focus on Greenwood this donation on behalf of the Arvest Foundation,” Skinner said. “With this donation, Focus on Greenwood was not only able to provide a prosthetic device to a very well-deserving recipient, but also able to have funds leftover to support many other needs in our community. We are very thankful for the Arvest Foundation allowing us to provide local support to the communities that we serve.”
