Bank donates to several Great Falls non-profit agencies

First Interstate Bank in Great Falls recently made several donations to organizations in Cascade County.

The beneficiaries were Toby's House Crisis Nursery, the Maclean-Cameron Animal Adoption Center, Shop With A Cop, and Shop With A Sheriff.

A total of $1,423 was donated to each non-profit agency.

The money was raised through the bank's Employee Jean Day Fund.

Employees donate $10 each month in order to wear jeans to work every Friday. The money is pooled and added to a fund which is matched by the bank.

The non-profits were selected by bank employees.

Bank spokesman Kevin Eckhardt explained, "We desire the bank to be a community bank, as well as support the community through different nonprofits. I think we've given $77 million since since 1990, just the whole bank through donations. And the bank is very supportive of employees getting out not only just jean money, but volunteering."
