The Carl and Alleen McKinney Charitable Trust, which has been managed by Arvest Bank since 1997, awarded more than $150,000 to a total of 13 organizations, it was announced late last month.
The presentation of gifts, overseen by Arvest Trust client advisor Diana Smith, was made in the conference center of the bank’s downtown Bentonville branch. Carl McKinney was the owner-manager of Callison-McKinney Funeral home in Bentonville.
 
“While the McKinneys had no children of their own, they always had a soft spot for kids,” Smith said. “They also had soft spots for the elderly, poor and any others who were considered disadvantaged. Because of their generosity, each year we are able to distribute these funds to various organizations. Their gift is a remarkable one to so many who call Northwest Arkansas home.”
 
Since its inception 20 years ago, the McKinney’s trust has distributed more than $3 million to local charities. This year’s applicants sought a total of more than $225,000, and the trust was able to distribute a total of $159,355.

Arvest Announces Coloring Contest Winner

Friday, July 14 at 08:45 AM
Category: Arvest Community News

We are excited to announce the winner of our coloring contest hosted by Arvest and the Early Childhood Initiatives Center* in Bentonville, Ark.

Congratulations to our winner Shraunak Sagare, age 4! His art will be featured on an Arvest Bank debit card along with the logo of the Helen R. Walton Children’s Enrichment Center- Early Childhood Initiatives Center.

Sagare’s entry was selected from more than 80 submissions in the competition, which was held June 24 at the Bentonville Farmer’s Market - Kids Art Park.*

“Every piece was unique and reflected a wonderful insight about the child that created it,” said Michelle Barnes, executive director of the Early Childhood Initiatives Center. “It's incredible to watch … young children move through stages of development beginning with random scribbling and moving to lines and patterns, and finally being able to draw pictures of objects and people. It's only then a child is developmentally ready to write letters. 

“The contest winner was selected because the artwork reflects a young learner’s process towards developing fine motor skills. Additionally, he used art to express his view on life. When we make art a part of regular part of learning, children are able to express their feelings, problem solve, learn cause and effect, and gain confidence.”

Thank you to all of the young artists who participated in this fun event!
