Farmers Bank & Trust Back To School Bash Brings Fun & School Supplies For Local Youth

The kids had a blast at the Hub in downtown Hope tonight while attending the Farmers Bank & Trust Back to School Bash. The event was free for all who attended, and every child was given a backpack with school supplies. The best part of the night for some kids was the fun and food. Hot dogs and shaved ice were provided, and the Hope Junior Auxiliary was there to give them fake tattoos. The Arkansas Department of Health was present to provide free vaccinations for those interested. Pafford Medical Services attended, as well, to lend a hand where needed. Market President for Farmers, Jacob Jones, said he was pleased with the turnout and shared the inspiration behind the night’s event. “Farmers Bank & Trust strives to be a positive community partner,” said Jones. “Part of our mission statement includes helping friends and neighbors, so our goal is to be as valuable to our community as we possibly can. Tonight that entails helping the community’s children get ready for this new school year.” Ready they are, too, because the kiddos who attended the Back to School Bash at the Hub tonight now have a backpack, some school supplies, and a happy smile. They are all set to get this new school year started off the right way!
