Legence Bank will be recognized by Caritas Family Solutions with the Diamond Award to be presented at the Second Annual Denim & Diamonds Dinner on Oct. 13 at The Pavilion of the City of Marion.
The Diamond Award was initiated to honor an individual or organization who, through their service and contributions, has exemplified the mission and values of Caritas Family Solutions.
Legence Bank hosted a Winter Coat Drive during December 2017 at their 15 branches, which resulted in more than 450 coats, scarves, hats and gloves collected for children in foster care who might not otherwise have received the proper winter clothing. Legence Bank also partnered with Caritas Family Solutions to promote the “Blue Kids Campaign” in April 2018, raising $700 during Child Abuse Prevention Month. In addition, they crafted wooden “blue kid” cutouts and posted them throughout the community in order to raise awareness for the campaign and child abuse and neglect in general.
