BATESVILLE – February 19, 2013 – Joyce Prickett (far right in photo) of Citizens Bank helps Joel Wagoner (from left), David Smith and Jeannie Wagoner stock the food closet at Harvest of Hope in Batesville. The employees of Citizens Bank recently donated $500 to Harvest of Hope, which raises money each year to purchase food to fill backpacks for children in our local schools. The donation will also help stock the food closet at the Batesville Pre-School to assist school children and their families during the summer when they don’t have access to meals provided at school.
The Citizens Bank donation came from individual $1 contributions from bank associates that allow them to wear jeans on Fridays. Joyce Prickett also serves as a co-chair of Harvest of Hope.About The Citizens Bank
