First Independent Bank: Collecting Coats for Children in Need

Beginning in 2015, First Independent Bank teamed up with the Hot August Nights Foundation to provide warm coats to Northern Nevada children in need. During the entire month of October, employees, customers and the general public are encouraged to drop off new or gently used coats at any First Independent Bank location. A combined 322 coats were collected during the first two coat drives and were given to the Boys and Girls Club of Truckee Meadows for distribution to those children who might otherwise go without.
