The Arvest Foundation recently announced a $ 5,000 contribution to Washington County Youth and Family Services.
Local Arvest Bank President Kim Adams and Commercial Banker Chad Cox presented the check to Executive Director of Youth and Family Services Katie Wilson.
The funds were used immediately to purchase supplies for a new back patio behind the Youth and Family Services emergency youth shelter. The bridge was built by volunteers from Bartlesville Leadership Class Thirty as part of their classroom project.
In a statement, Adams, a Bartlesville XXX Leadership class attendee (30), said:
“It is an honor for us to present this donation on behalf of the Arvest Foundation to support the youth and families in our community. Working on this project with funds from the Arvest Foundation has been a gratifying achievement. We are happy to play a small role in providing this much needed backyard patio for the youth in our community. “
This mission of Washington County Youth and Family Services is to serve and strengthen youth and families. “To serve” implies a genuine interest in and concern for the needs of others. “Strengthening” implies a commitment to best meet these needs through quality services and qualified interventions.
