First Bank supports Angel Gift Program

The First Bank branch in Kill Devil Hills has once again participated in the Outer Banks Woman’s Club Angel Gift Program.

This is the eighth year the bank has partnered with the Outer Banks Woman’s Club and the Dare County Department of Social Services to help provide a magical Christmas experience for Dare County children who may otherwise go without. First Bank matched dollar for dollar the amount fundraised throughout the year from bake sales and customer donations. After the Christmas wish lists were fulfilled, First Bank will donate the extra funds to the Beach Food Pantry.

“First Bank looks forward to supporting this program each year,” said Kenneth Marshall, senior vice president and city executive. “Thanks to the Angel Gift Program, our staff for creating delicious baked goods, and our loyal customers who support our bake sales throughout the year. First Bank is proud and honored to once again be making a Christmas wish come true, and to provide further support to the Beach Food Pantry.”
