The Farmers Bank Foundation in Magnolia has donated a total of $5,000 to five offices of The CALL, a nonprofit organization that mobilizes and equips local churches to serve children and young people in foster care.
Farmers Bank has awarded $1,000 to the following CALL offices in Arkansas: Hempstead and Nevada counties, Miller County, Columbia County and Lafayette, Saline and Berry counties, and Ouachita County.
“I have seen firsthand how CALL can make a difference in a child’s life,” said Elizabeth Burns Anderson, CEO of Farmers Bank. “They work endlessly to provide safe Christian homes for children in nurseries.”
The Farmers Bank Foundation’s giving priorities are to support local nonprofits whose mission is to meaningfully enrich the quality of life in the communities in which Farmers Bank & Trust customers and employees live.
CALL is a statewide organization active in 44 counties around Arkansas. They partner with the Department of Children and Family Services to recruit, train and support foster and adoptive families of children and teens in foster care.
said Julia DesCarpentrie, the county coordinator for The CALL in Saline and Perry counties. “We appreciate the support of Farmers Bank & Trust.”
Descarpentery said the money donated to Saline and Perry County will be used to finish a new backyard and swing before spring for their main office located at 2010 Military Road in Paignton.
