Fort Collins (Nov 19 2009) Great Western Bank is donating $5,000 to the Realities for Children Charities' NightLights Fund.
The gift is part of the bank's Greater Than CD program and will be used to help abused and neglected children during the holidays.
"This gift comes at a time when all too many children need our services, and we value the support that the bank is giving to us and our community," said Craig Secher, Realities for Children Charities' president and founder. "Great Western Bank's generosity will go a long way in brightening the lives of abused and neglected children."
NightLights' donations will serve more than 1,000 children in December and 17 children's agencies and youth programs in Larimer County next year.
