Arvest Bank, Ultimate Auto Group Present Checks to Three Nonprofits

Friday, October 20 at 02:00 PM
Category: Arvest Community News
Arvest Bank and Ultimate Auto Group recently presented three Charity of the Year recipients with individual checks totaling $19,200. The donations are the result of proceeds from the 21st Annual Charity Golf Tournament hosted by Arvest Bank and Ultimate Auto Group that benefits up to three nonprofit organizations located in the bank’s North Central Arkansas territory. 
 
This year’s recipients include The Call of Baxter and Marion Counties, organizations that work “to educate, equip and encourage the Christian community to provide a future and a hope for children in foster care in Arkansas.” Children’s Charity Ministry in Harrison is also a 2017 Charity of the Year. The Christian-based nonprofit provides food, hygiene kits, household necessities and other services to children in need in eight counties in North Central Arkansas. 
 
“Together, we are making a very meaningful and lasting impact in the lives of so many families and children in our area,” said Tom Dame, president and CEO of Arvest Bank in North Central Arkansas. “These donations are possible only because of the participation and generosity of those who contribute to this golf tournament year after year and, for that, we are very grateful.”
 
Every year the tournament benefits as many as three nonprofit organizations from Baxter, Boone and Marion Counties in Arkansas, and Howell County in Missouri.  Eligible charities that are designated as a 501(c)(3) organization are invited each spring to apply for consideration as a Charity of the Year. Recipients are selected by Arvest Bank associates based on past, present and future financial needs, as well as other criteria.  
 
The tournament was held at Big Creek Golf and Country Club in Mountain Home.

Arvest Community Garden: Growing Our Community One Seed at a Time

Monday, October 16 at 02:00 PM
Category: Arvest Community News
In the spring of 2014, the first seeds were planted in the Arvest Community Garden in Greater Kansas City. The garden was offered as a starting point for local individuals wanting to learn more about community gardening and local garden initiatives. The garden consists of 12 raised beds, nine of which are rented or utilized by Arvest volunteers for donations.

Over the past few years, our volunteers have experience many successful harvest seasons, with this year being no different. On Friday, September 29th, our Arvest Community Garden volunteers spent hours harvesting sweet potatoes and tomatoes. Arvest was able to donate 394 pounds of sweet potatoes and 27 pounds of tomatoes to Raytown Emergency Assistance Program (REAP).

The donated goods go to REAP’s emergency food pantry which offers a well-balanced and nutritious selection of canned and dry goods, bread, vegetables, meat and dairy products. REAP strives to provide each family enough food to last two to three weeks. Arvest is proud to partner with REAP to help them meet this need.
