First National Bank & Trust employees voted to use the proceeds for the sale proceeds from the 130th Anniversary Cookbooks to help fund weekend food bags for children in the area. Along with a match from the bank, a check for $2,000 was presented to a representative of Iron Mountain and Kingsford Weekend Food Bags Programs.
This program was started to ensure that every Friday, children in need from Iron Mountain and Kingsford Schools will receive a weekend’s worth of food. The bag is placed discretely in their backpack. A typical bag will consist of soups/canned meal, oatmeal or cereal, granola bars, and a couple of snacks.
For more information on the program, please contact either school. A GoFundMe account was established for anyone who would like to make a donation: https://www.gofundme.com/weekend-food-packs
