The 3rd Annual “Warm Hearts” Winter Clothing Drive was a success this year. Community members from Forcht Bank's twelve markets generously donated 5,517 new winter clothing items—including coats, gloves, hats, and scarves—for children in need.

Clothing items were collected from November 16th through December 31st, and distributed to non-profits and school resource centers on January 4, 2016. In addition to the items collected from all 30 banking center locations throughout Kentucky, Forcht Bank donated $10 for every checking account opened during the same time period to help purchase additional clothing items. A total of 642 accounts were opened during this time, totaling $6,420 that was used to buy new hats, coats, glove and scarves for children.

“We are extremely grateful for the generosity of our customers and their willingness to join us in helping those less fortunate in their community,” said Forcht Bank President Tucker Ballinger.
