National Bank of Commerce teams up with Where’s Duke? and Project Joy to help kids this holiday season
Thursday, November 14, 2019
National Bank of Commerce (NBC), is the area’s largest, locally-owned, full-service community bank. It’s important for NBC to give back to the communities in which we serve. With the holidays upon us many are thinking of shopping for gifts, travel and time with family. For some, this isn’t the case as many children in our area don’t have sufficient food on the weekends.
Project Joy is a non-profit organization that provides healthy meals to kids on the weekends. The food is packed in backpacks and delivered to those in need on Fridays. The backpack contains two breakfasts, two snacks and two dinners. Project Joy provides 1,200 meals to local children every week and a child can be fed for just under $4. Project Joy is organized and run by Laura Plys.
Where’s Duke? is a true story written by author Dan Urshan of Duluth, MN. This children’s book is a heartwarming tale of a boy who loves his black Labrador, Duke, more than anything. When Duke goes missing one day, good samaritans and the local humane society pitch in to care for him until he can be reunited with his family. A portion of the proceeds from this book go back to Animal Allies.
