A regional bank is spreading the warmth to children of Northern Nevada.

First Independent Bank customers, employees, and the general public collected nearly 200 new winter coats during a month-long coat drive at all seven locations in Northern Nevada.

The 192 coats were donated to the Boys and Girls Club of Truckee Meadows.

“It is truly heartwarming to see the widespread support we have from our customers, employees and the community at large, as we work to provide a necessity for many children who are in need.” said Bob Francl, Executive Vice President, Regional Manager First Independent Bank.

First Independent Bank partnered with the Hot August Nights Foundation to provide winter coats to children in need.

The Hot August Nights Foundation collected an additional 288 winter coats during its annual one-day coat collection event at A&W restaurants on Nov. 5, 2016. The coats will also be donated to the Boys and Girls Club of Truckee Meadows.
