FNBT GIVES $20,000 GRANT TO TREMONT BETTERMENT
The First National Bank in Tremont has been awarded a $20,000 COVID-19 Relief Program grant from the FHLBank Chicago to support local nonprofit organizations affected by the pandemic.
These funds have been forwarded to the Tremont Betterment Association to help offset the losses due to the cancellation of the Tremont Turkey Festival this year. Proceeds from this festival have funded a multitude of Tremont community organizations and activities for the past 54 years and the cancellation leaves a huge deficit in funds for next year. According to June Kidd, President/CEO of The First National Bank in Tremont, “We are thrilled to be able to forward these funds to the Tremont Betterment Association. This is what community banking is all about!”
“The Tremont Betterment Association would like to thank The First National Bank in Tremont for awarding our organization this community grant. While we are unable to have our annual Turkey Festival in 2020, we continue to have obligations to our reserved funds within our organization, such as the Tremont Pool, the scholarship fund and the Veteran’s memorial fund for flags. This grant will enable us to continue to contribute to our reserved funds, so that we can fund these projects. Many thanks to The First National Bank in Tremont for awarding TBA this grant,” says Jason Kreiling, President of Tremont Betterment Association.
