First National Bank Assembles Care Packages for Overseas Service Members
First National Bank (www.fnbo.com) is proud to salute all military veterans who served or are serving in the United States Armed Forces. To show the bank’s support and appreciation for their honorable service and patriotism, First National Bank invited the public to nominate service members to receive cookies to ring in the New Year. As a result of this effort, First National employee volunteers packaged and sent over 36,000 cookies overseas. Cookie packing events took place at eight bank locations on January 3, including the First National branch at 13th and N St., in Lincoln. Each Cookies from Home care package also included candy and notes of thanks, many of these written by students in the community.
The Cookies from Home program gives First National Bank the opportunity to make an impact in our communities while sharing the joy of the holidays with our service members overseas. It’s also a way for employees to get involved, from helping package the cookies to making nominations themselves. The care packages were delivered in late January to help our service men and women start their New Year with Cookies from Home.
