First Bank has teamed up with the Western Service Workers Association (WSWA) to collect basic back-to-school supplies for low-income students in Southern California this summer.
“We encourage people to stop by a participating First Bank and make a donation,” said Susan Montoya, Senior Vice President and Corporate Community Reinvestment Act Officer for First Bank. “Our goal is to collect as many filled backpacks as we can to help these students get off to a great start when the first school bell rings.”
From July 29 through August 16, First Bank offices in Costa Mesa (3001 Harbor Blvd), Huntington Beach (16900 Goldenwest St.), Newport Beach (4301 MacArthur Blvd), Fountain Valley (18020 Brookhurst St.), Westminster (8251 Westminster), and Yorba Linda (18206 Imperial) will serve as school supply collection sites.
WSWA strives to improve conditions for low-income working people. The non-profit organization provides food, medical care and legal advice.
First Bank is one of the largest privately owned banks in the country with over $6.92 billion in assets and 131 locations in California, Missouri, Florida, and Illinois.
