Republic Bank to support Fayette County Sheriff's Winter Care Program Coat Drive
Lexington, Ky.- Republic Bank is partnering with the Office of the Fayette County Sheriff's Winter Care Program by supporting its city-wide coat drive throughout the month of February. Republic has volunteered to host collection sites for coat donations at its five Lexington area banking centers.
The Winter Care Program was implemented after the ice storm in early 2003 as a response to the Lexington community's needs during severe weather events. Through the program the Office of the Sheriff checks on residents whose family members are unable to reach them, or whose neighbors are concerned about them. Blankets and coats are available for those who need them, as well as delivery of medications for those who cannot leave their homes due to the weather.
"We are proud to support this worthwhile initiative in helping Lexington citizens who are in need," says Bo Henry, Republic Bank Market President. "The Winter Program sponsored by the Sheriff's Office is inspiring and we are happy to be partnering with them."
Donations of coats and gloves will be accepted at Republic Bank's five Lexington area locations at Chevy
Chase, Harrodsburg Road, Andover, Tates Creek and Perimeter Drive.
