Reno - First Independent Bank is helping provide warm winter coats to Northern Nevada children whose families may not be able to afford one.
For the third year in a row, First Independent Bank is joining the Hot August Nights Foundation to encourage the general public, as well as First Independent Bank clients and employees, to join in this important coat collection drive.
During the month of October, all First Independent Bank locations will accept donations of new or gently used winter coats during normal businesses hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Each location has a designated bin where coats can be dropped off.
“With the winter climate in Northern Nevada, it is important that children have a warm winter coat and for a variety of reasons, some children don’t,” said Bob Francl, Executive Vice President, Regional President at First Independent Bank “We like to participate in this coat drive because it helps address an immediate need in a very tangible way.”
Coats collected at First Independent Bank locations will be given to the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows which will distribute them to families in need.
First Independent Bank locations accepting donated coats include:
Kietzke Lane - 5335 Kieztke Lane, Reno
Robb Drive - 6290 Sharlands Avenue, Reno
Sparks Industrial - 980 S. McCarran Boulevard, Sparks
Sparks Marina - 725 Speaks Boulevard, Sparks

A & W Restaurant - 900 East Plumb Lane, Reno
