BENEFITING: The Boot Campaign
Between September 11th and Veterans Day, F&M Bank is working, both locally and nationally, to honor our brave service members, increase awareness of the challenges they face, and raise money to support their transitions home. We are inviting employees to support the cause by donating to the Boot Campaign through an internal fund drive that allows them to wear jeans on the nine Fridays between 9/11 and 11/11. We are inviting the public to support the Boot Campaign and honor local veterans with a clay shoot fundraiser on Veterans Day and with photos of local veterans on “Thank you” boards in nine branches. Since the Bank employs quite a few retired service members, and with so many veterans and active duty members in our communities, we thought, “why stop there?!” which is how these initiatives began!
