Employees of First Western Bank and Trust joined together to donate new blankets to be given to the Domestic Violence Crisis Center. These blankets will be given to children when they arrive at the safe home and taken with them when they leave.
Project Inspiration: The First Western Bank and Trust marketing committee felt the employees of FWBT would be excited to be involved in a Power of 100 project. We contacted the Domestic Violence Crisis Center to get an idea of items they could use for the safe home. They stated many times when there is a domestic in the home the children leave with little or no warning and arrive at the safe home with nothing. We felt it was important for the children to have something new they could receive and take with them when they leave the safe home and that blankets would be a perfect comfort item.
