Send Your Friends a "Pinwheel Party!"

 If you’re passionate about helping abused children through Kids First, and know other people that are as well, then consider sending your friends a “Pinwheel Party”! Kids First volunteers will deliver a colorful assortment of pinwheels to decorate the recipient's lawn as a challenge to make a donation to Kids First. This campaign will also spread much-needed awareness for Kids First and the victims we serve. To send a Pinwheel Party, or to volunteer for this program, please call Courtney at Kids First at 252-338-5658, or e-mail her at ccottrell@kidsfirstinc.org .

 

Towne Bank of Currituck: A True Community Bank!

 The Towne Bank of Currituck demonstrated that they are truly a community bank when they selected Kids First as a beneficiary of their foundation’s annual charity golf tournament. Last week, our Director, Rhonda Morris, and Board President, Louise Woodworth, were thrilled beyond words to receive a check in the amount of $7,000.00 at the tournament in Suffolk. According to Ms. Morris, “The Community Reinvestment Act mandates a certain amount of financial giving by banks, but it cannot mandate kindness, compassion, or the genuine caring about a community’s needs that Towne Bank demonstrates on a regular basis. It is very obviously part of their culture and is woven into the fabric of who they are as a business.”
