Vision Bank Texas employees held a shoe drive to benefit a local nonprofit - Network of Community Ministries. 'Gathering Soles for Network' is a community outreach collecting new and gently used shoes for toddlers through adult sizes to commemorate John F. Kennedy's commitment to service. Pictured with the donated items are VBT employees Linda, Sarah, Lawanda, Elissa, Jesse and Diana.
VBT employees support the RISD Spirit Run on November 9th at Galatyn Park. Jessica Myrick, Diana Castillo, and Elissa Barbosa had a fun workout by running in the annual Loudest & Proudest 5k on earth. Cindi Jackson, our Marketing Director, got up bright and early to help, as Vision Bank Texas is a proud sponsor of this event. The Spirit Run benefits the Students, Teachers & EIE Foundation of RISD. The event has entertainment every stop of the way, cheer squads, drum lines, and Jazz Bands from the four RISD high schools throughout the route to cheer participants to the finish.
On August 14th, Vision Bank-Texas was proud to sponsor a table for the 55th Annual Richardson ISD New Teacher Luncheon hosted by the Richardson Chamber of Commerce. This event honored the 400 new teachers entering RISD for the 2013-2014 school year and featured former state senator Florence Shapiro as the keynote speaker.
Two lucky new teachers each received a Vision Bank-Texas lunch cooler filled with teaching supplies and a $100 gift card as a part of the door prize giveaway; a great way to start their year!
