Washington Trust Bank
Firefighter outreach effort
What are we doing?
The request is for fire fighters in remote areas that are running out of much needed supplies and our goal is to engage our customers and community in our efforts to collect supplies at our branch locations. We will focus on North Idaho through Central WA for now. We will coordinate delivery of these items. We will coordinate delivery of these items. We are also reaching out to local businesses that carry these items to see if they will donate or offer discounts to customers who are purchasing to make these donations.

Encourage customers and community to join us in this campaign to procure items on list that Washington Trust Bank representatives will hang deliver to front lines. We will collect items at all our Spokane/N. Idaho and C. Washington branch locations. We are also reaching out to businesses to see if we can have collection points at their business the weekend of Sept. 12-13th. Most likely those would be businesses that people can buy the items above and then turn around to donate.
In addition, WTB is kick-starting this campaign with a $10,000 cash donation to help procure some items, start the collection process and fill an immediate need.
Collection starts Wednesday, Sept. 9th and will go until Wednesday, Sept. 16th. WTB plans to deliver to the frontline in Okanagan between September 17th and 18th.
